Activestate Perl
Window 7
web application using cgi

I use a tab delineated config file that is read into a hash:
infilename      ../input
outfilename     ../output

Plus a bunch other stuff.

I read it:
#Read the config file
open INFILE, "../input/config1.dat" or die "config1.dat not found\n";

my ($key, $value);
my %confighash;

while( <INFILE> ) {
         s/#.*//;            # ignore comments by erasing them
         next if /^(\s)*$/;  # skip blank lines
         chomp;              # remove trailing newline characters
         ($key, $value)=split("\t",$_);
         $confighash{ $key } = $value;
close INFILE;

Further I use:
my $infilename = $confighash{infilename};
my $d2cfilename = $infilename.".dbs";

open INFILE, "$d2cfilename" or &Error_Exit("$d2cfilename not found: $!");
my @d2clines = <INFILE>;

Works fine.

my $outfilename = $confighash{outfilename};
my $modfilename = $outfiilename . ".mod"; #add the extension.
open(OUTFILE, ">$modfilename") or &Error_Exit("$modfilename not opened: $!");

Produces an:
"Insecure dependency in open while running with -T switch at 
/cgi-bin/my_script.cgi line 1371

Where as:my $outfilename = "hardcode_the_path/filename";
my $modfilename = $outfiilename . ".mod"; #add the extension
open(OUTFILE, ">$modfilename") or &Error_Exit("$modfilename not opened: $!");

Does not product an error.

I am stuck with this one.

Thanks for any help!
