in reply to Homegrown Pseudo-Tainting

Just to add to all the posters above, who focus more on
untainting the data, perldoc perlsec gives this example
to beforehand check if the data is actually tainted:
sub is_tainted { return ! eval { join('',@_), kill 0; 1; }; }

print "profeth still\n" if /bird|devil/;
