Description Thomas Cameron 2002-10-07 19:50:51 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
After upgrading perl RPMs, I started getting the error:

[Mon Oct  7 13:59:01 2002] [error] [client xx.xx.xx.xx] Premature end of script 
headers: /var/www/cgi-bin/
Undefined subroutine &CGI::unescape called 
at /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/CGI/ line 75.
Attempt to free unreferenced scalar.

In the file /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/CGI/, line 75 needs to be changed 
from :

values = map CGI::unescape($_),split(/[&;]/,$value.'&dmy');


values = map CGI::Util::unescape($_),split(/[&;]/,$value.'&dmy');

I shamelessly ripped this off from a Debian bug report.  ;-)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Perform default install of RH 7.2
2. Grap all patches
3. Apply said patches
4. Get yelled at by the client when the web site stops working.

Actual Results:  I am NOT a perl hacker, I prolly can't explain exactly what 
happened, but after the upgrades to perl 5.6, we started getting a 500 internal 
server error on web page built from perl script.

Expected Results:  Customer should be able to order product from web site.

Comment 1 Warren Togami 2005-05-28 07:07:16 UTC
Closing due to lack of activity and likely fixed in modern perl.  If this is
still an issue in RHEL4, FC3 or FC4 please open a new bug with new test
information and exact versions of packages.
