in reply to Checking to see if Taint mode is enabled

${^TAINT}

Reflects if taint mode is on or off. 1 for on (the program was run with -T), 0 for off, -1 when only taint warnings are enabled (i.e. with -t or -TU).

In Perl 5.8.

    You have to use that new global inside an eval for backwards compatibility:
    sub is_tainted { my $taint; if ( $] >= 5.008 ) { $taint = eval '${^TAINT}'; } else { # some work around ... } $taint; }
