in thread CGI open of tmpfile

I don't think that this is particularly good advice. Please correct me if I am wrong, but the CGI docs clearly state that temp dirs are found in the following order:

  • ~user/tmp
  • $ENV{TMPDIR}
  • the usual suspects (/usr/tmp, /var/tmp, C:\temp, /tmp, /temp, ::Temporary Items, and \WWW_ROOT)
I don't see any mention of it looking at the value of $TempFile::TMPDIRECTORY (whatever that might be) and I certainly wouldn't recommend anyone start hacking CGI.pm.

    You are right. But what if he or his sysadmin created another tmp directory, and disabled all the places, where CGI.pm looks after? I don't think that's impossible. What can he do then instead of hacking?

      $ENV{TMPDIR} = '/some/writable/directory';?
