Um, say *what*?

Apple provides half a dozen ways to open a URL portably
that work on any version of OSX. You could just do this
if all else fails...

switch(pid = fork()) {
case 0: execl("/usr/bin/open", "open", url, NULL);
case -1: display_error("fork failed"); break;
default: waitpid(pid, &stat, 0); break;
}

Using Perl to "handle clickable URLs" on OSX is an
unnecessary dependancy (not to mention somewhat
perverse). If you got rid of it you could support 10.2
again, and probably 10.1 as well.

    Please download the latest version of XCA and check if the bug you submitted is still
    present; if so, add a comment to this bug report. If there is no response within two
    weeks, the bug will automatically be marked as closed. This has been done to clear the
    database from old bugs which have probably been fixed, which will enable faster
    responses to new bugs.
