The tick_twiki.pl script has been moved to twiki/tools (as it should be). Running perl tick_twiki.pl gives this error:

bash-2.05$ perl tools/tick_twiki.pl
Can't locate setlib.cfg in @INC (@INC contains: . /opt/csw/lib/perl/site_perl /opt/csw/share/perl/site_perl /opt/csw/share/perl/site_perl /opt/csw/lib/perl/csw /opt/csw/share/perl/csw /opt/csw/share/perl/csw /opt/csw/lib/perl/5.8.7 /opt/csw/share/perl/5.8.7 .) at tools/tick_twiki.pl line 37.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at tools/tick_twiki.pl line 38.

The header has this:

# THIS SCRIPT IS DESIGNED TO BE RUN FROM YOUR bin DIRECTORY.
# This is so it can pick up the right TWiki environment from
# setlib.cfg.

Since it makes sense to keep this and other scripts in twiki/tools, should we introduce a setlib.cfg in this directory?

-- PTh

Maybe. The reason I am somewhat reluctant is that we then end up with multiple setlib.cfg's to maintain. There are four alternatives:

  1. Execute all scripts when cd'd to bin
  2. Copy setlib.cfg and LocalLib.cfg to tools
  3. Require that ../bin/setlib.cfg resolves from tools
  4. Require that setlib.cfg be found in @INC before running any script
Of these, 4 is my strong preference. The command-line for tick_twiki.pl would be:
perl -I ../bin tick_twiki.pl
(replace .. with the absolute path to the bin dir)

I changed the documentation accordingly.
