in reply to Hands-on of Perl by Web

Doing it via ajax isn't terribly complicated, neither is executing perl in a safe way. I've been running a bot that does much the same thing for a while now and a combination of chroot and a bunch of restrictive ulimits have made it extremely safe.

    May you could share your solution ?

      Chroots and ulimits were my solution. Fork a process, chroot it to someplace useless, add a series of extremely restrictive ulimits for memory, open files, cpu and so forth, then have it drop to a nobody user so it can't change them.

      If you're interested in working further on this, send me a private message and we can talk specifics.

erix just did a 12 km-run. Slow, but unstoppable!
[choroba]: My recent record is 10km in 1 hour :)
[perldigious]: Nice erix... perldigious' legs are so sore from portaging his kayak from place to place last weekend he can barely hobble 12m. :-)
[erix]: you're faster than me then :)
[erix]: well, at the moment, that is :)
[erix]: I should lose some weight although I keep telling myself that I'm doing extra training by lugging it along
[erix]: I saw a common kingfisher and a couple of bullfinches
[erix]: bullfinch ( a male and a female )
