I've installed the HTML validator on my local dev server (OS X,
10.3.5), based on the latest version of the article published by

I think everything installed smoothly.
However, when I try to validate a file (either via http:// or via file
upload), the validator returns the following error:

Software error:

Can't use string ("") as a HASH ref while "strict refs" in use at
/Library/WebServer/Documents/validator/htdocs/check line 1504.

Is this a problem in the validator itself, or did I miss something
(possibly in the required Perl modules) ?
