in thread framechat

BTW, the suggestion on this that I made in the chatterbox was $ENV{TMPDIR} || $ENV{TMP} || $ENV{TEMP} || "/tmp"
(with the possiblity of replacing "/tmp" with File::Spec->tmpdir() if you don't mind requiring Perl 5.6) and then dieing if the resulting directory did not exist.

    Here is one way to do the above while giving a decent error message:

    my $env; my $tmpdir= $ENV{$env="TMPDIR"} || $ENV{$env="TMP"} || $ENV{$env="TEMP"} || ($env="","/tmp"); if( ! -d $tmpdir ) { die "Invalid temporary directory ($tmpdir)", $env ? " (taken from \$ENV{$env})" : "(please set TMPDIR, TMP, or TEMP in your environment)", "\n"; }

            - tye (but my friends call me "Tye")
      Too much repeated code.
      my $tmpdir; for (qw(TMPDIR TMP TEMP)) { next unless $tmpdir = $ENV{$_}; last if -d $tmpdir; die "Invalid temporary directory $tmpdir from \$ENV{$_}\n"; } $tmpdir ||= "/tmp"; # if this is busted, you got troubles...

        $tmpdir ||= "/tmp"; # if this is busted, you got troubles...

        I guess you've never heard of the existance of other operating systems, eh? (:
