What is the way to tell wrappers that PERL5LIB should include ~/bin directories?

Having this in the wiki.setup doesn't help anymore:

    # environment variables
    ENV => {
      PATH => '/home/user/bin/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/home/user/ikiwiki/usr/bin/:/home/user/ikiwiki/usr/sbin/:/home/user/bin/bin/:~/bin/bin/',
      PERL5LIB => '/home/user/bin/share/perl/5.10.0:/home/user/bin/lib/perl/5.10.0'

Or at least I get CGI errors and running ikiwiki.cgi manually fails too:

    Use of uninitialized value $tainted in pattern match (m//) at /usr/share/perl5/IkiWiki.pm line 233.
    Argument "" isn't numeric in umask at /usr/share/perl5/IkiWiki.pm line 139.
    Undefined subroutine &IkiWiki::cgierror called at /home/user/bin/bin/ikiwiki line 199.

Server has an older ikiwiki installed but I'd like to use a newer version from git, and I don't have root access.

You can't set PERL5LIB in ENV in a setup file, because ikiwiki is already running before it reads that, and so it has little effect.

That's fixed now for anything invoked through the generated wrappers: they put all the setup ENV values into the real environment before starting Perl. (When running ikiwiki at the command line, PERL5LIB just has to be in the environment, as it would normally be.)

Your error messages do look like a new bin/ikiwiki is using an old version of IkiWiki.pm.

The thing to do is set INSTALL_BASE when you're installing ikiwiki from source. Like so:

    cd ikiwiki
    make install

Then $HOME/bin/ikiwiki will have hardcoded into it to look for ikiwiki's perl modules in $HOME/lib/perl5/ (This is documented in the README file by the way.) --Joey

Ok, perl Makefile.PL INSTALL_BASE=$HOME/bin PREFIX= finally did it for me. I tried too many things with these paths so I wasn't sure which actually worked. After that I did $ ikiwiki --setup www.setup --wrappers --rebuild. Somehow in this update mess I seem to have lost the user accounts, maybe the --rebuild was too much.
