in thread framechat

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"; }

    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? (:

        He has, that's why he can say it's trouble. :)
