If cmsutil is not given a file for batch mode, the command core dumps.

Jason, thanks for the report. If you can, in the future, please report the stack
of crashes using "dbx <progname core" and the "where" command.

In this case the crash is due to lack of validation on the value argument for -i

Attached patch fix coredump on -i without file (obsolete) — Splinter Review
You would think getopt would not provide a NULL ptr in optstate->value given
the "i:" definition in the parser which means it requires an argument. sigh.
We should probably review all the other arguments, but I only have time to fix
this one today.

fix coredump on -i without file

I seem to remember fixing this for some of our other commands... I'm sure this
problem is rampant.

If the option parser didn't provide the NULL pointer, how else would we know of
an error state in PL_GetOpt?

Saul, thanks for the review.

Regarding the 2nd question - the getopt parser call could fail . But I guess we
may not know about specific failures then.

It sounds like we need to check all the tools that we ship for this problem in
3.10 .

You should check for a null optstate->value before
the PR_Open call.  It is bad to pass a null pointer
as the first argument to PR_Open.
