Re^4: How to do perl -c inside perl?by BrowserUk (Pope)

I'm not sure that I see your use case as warranting the check -- I doubt you can report the error any better than perl could when it runs it -- but may be I'm just not getting the full picture.
If your use case is only ever going to accept strings from a programmer via the command line -- where he could easily just type whatever bad stuff he might give you directly into the command line, or perl, then you perhaps don't need to worry about it. Your call.
But there has been someone (may be you?) asking about accepting code via a web-server and then running it, hence my caution.
