in reply to Taint mode testing a module

I would start by testing for untaintedness. For example, your script to test loading shouldn't be tainted. Take a look at Test::Taint by petdance. It doesn't get any better than that.

    Awesome! That was precisely what I was looking for. Thanks!!

    And yes, I'm testing non-tainted mode first. I just want to make sure that my code behaves well with the taint flag now while I'm working on it and it's fresh in my mind, rather than being surprised a few weeks, months, or even years down the road.
