    Thanks for this. I used to be in a somewhat similar situation a few years back (/home's read permission is turned off) and I remember not being able to use FindBin (which uses abs_path() too).

    Btw, what's the point of blocking read access to /home. So a hosting user cannot list other users in the box? Can't you get that easily from /etc/{passwd,group} anyway?
