Subject: Crypt::RSA uses FindBin improperly
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 705b
Crypt::RSA uses FindBin to calculate the location of lib directories for further inclusion. This is problematic for a few reasons: 1) it assumes the directory layout of the calling module 2) FindBin::Bin is calculated only once during a BEGIN block for the entire application 3) it is generally unnecessary when using fully namespaced modules 4) it breaks code running under modperl, or really any forking server that runs includes the library after forking I have successfully tested the latest version with the following lines deleted From Crypt::RSA : use FindBin qw($Bin); use lib "$Bin/../../lib"; From Crypt::RSA::Key::Private::SSH : use FindBin qw($Bin); use lib "$Bin/../../../../../lib";
Already fixed in Alt::Crypt::RSA::BigInt for all the reasons noted.

This seems to be a repeat of https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=83303 . Considering how that issues is over a year old, should we consider contacting the maintainer directly?
