I can't see where to log a bug report, so if this isn't the right place
please point me onwards.
Linux command line get_iplayer version 2.78 and 2.79. Maybe a few
earlier versions too.
Updates only work if one is actually in the directory containing
get_iplayer, or if you have a file "get_iplayer" present and writable in
one's current directory. If you remove line 28 ($0 = 'get_iplayer';)
then the updates work correctly and as expected, i.e. "sudo get-iplayer
--update" works again.
