Hi, There's a line in find_tempdir that checks for a writable directory: for (@TEMP) { do {$TMPDIRECTORY = $_; last} if -d $_ && -w _; } I think the "-w _" is a typo, a $ is missing and it causes find_tmpdir to misbehave. This is present in the current CPAN version (3.59) in line 4191. Greetings Endre

That's not a typo, that's correct perl syntax. Review here: perldoc -f - And scroll to the bottom. Submit a failing test case if you've found a bug in CGI.pm Mark

Sorry for the false report and many thanks for pointing me to the right direction. I couldn't find it in the manual at first and was confused that setting $ENV{TMPDIR} in the script itself is not enough. Endre
