Subject: FindBin relies on &Cwd::abs_path
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 2.5k
----------------------------------------------------------------- [Please enter your report here] Cwd::abs_path() functions by chdir()ing to each path in turn, and then stat()ing them, as well as opendir()ing them. It exits, returning "" (which is The Wrong Thing) if it is unable to opendir() any given directory in the path. Possible solutions: Fix Cwd::abs_path(), so it doesn't do that. Possibly, rather than warning and returning, it should use fast_abs_path() instead, which should handle warnings if they need to be given. Alternatively, have FindBin use a fallback if abs_path() fails.
