Updated use of $HOME in message, replaced by $ENV{HOME} causing compilation error in script

Use case

perl ../ensembl-test/scripts/ --curr_dir modules/t/ --species homo_sapiens_dump Global symbol "$HOME" requires explicit package name at ../ensembl-test/scripts/ line 91. Execution of ../ensembl-test/scripts/ aborted due to compilation errors.


No more error
