I'm using the Fish shell in OSX but my brew installation is broken and I'm struggling to get it working again. Below is the error I get when I try to use brew. Any ideas? If I switch shells (back to zsh) brew seems to work fine ...

~> brew 
/usr/local/Library/Homebrew/global.rb:103: private method `split' called for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError)
from /usr/local/Library/brew.rb:18:in `require'
from /usr/local/Library/brew.rb:18

Have you considered filing an issue with Homebrew for this? –  slhck Mar 14 '13 at 21:17
I have done that as well. Thanks. –  Billy Mar 14 '13 at 23:40
