Description Terje Bless 2002-10-26 20:05:30 UTC
Reported by Björn Höhrmann:

In the config file there are references to other config files like

Element Map	file:///usr/local/validator/htdocs/config/eref.cfg
FPI to Text	file:///usr/local/validator/htdocs/config/fpis.cfg

Those lines get parsed like

      if    ($v =~ s(^file://){}) {$cfg{$k} = &read_cfg($v)  }

plain wrong. The URI module should be used to parse the URIs and the
path() method used to get the path, otherwise you run into problems with
Win32 file URI references like

No point fixing this since we'll rip out the code and replace it with
Config::General in any case. Setting blocker on Bug #43.
Comment 2 Terje Bless 2002-10-27 10:30:24 UTC
Setting target to 0.7.0.
Comment 3 Ville Skyttä 2002-11-26 16:43:44 UTC
Done, just committed the Config::General stuff.
