in reply to To taint or not to taint?

I guess the answer is use Taint if you don't know why and don't use Taint if you know.

Taint inst only for Perl, you can turn on taint for back-ends also.

I find that most the time taint wants to error on root paths or things the user can never touch.
This code can save you a few lines, it untaint's Environment paths.

# Clean up the environment. delete @ENV{qw(IFS CDPATH ENV BASH_ENV)};

Spiel auf Hündinnen.
