in reply to Strange error dumping tainted data

I think you need to try another approach.

Instead of using an 'S' namespace, try putting all the variables you need to save into a global hash (%::S will do).

use Storable; $S{scalar} = 5; @{$S{array}} = (5, 6, 7, 8); %{$S{hash}} = (hi => 1, there => 2); Storable::store \%S, 'state.sav'; %S = %{ Storable::retrieve('state.sav') };
(Note that for the purposes of saving and restoring variables, Storable has a number of advantages over Data::Dumper.)

    I am curious as to why you would suggest using a hash instead of a namespace. Is there a performance or security reason for changing it, or is it just a personal preference thing? There is a great deal of code already written using this method, so I wouldn't want to change it without cause. However, if there is a reason that it should be changed, I would definitly like to know! I was able to find a work-around, so my implementation is functional.

    I decided to use Data::Dumper instead of Storable for a couple of reasons. With another project, I had to rebuilt a lot of data after upgrading to a newer release of Perl that was not backwards compatible with the preious version of Storable. Also, I occasionally need to view and edit the information stored, and that is just easier with code that has been dumped.

    Thank you for the reply!
