( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

On a lark I took a quick trip out to CPAN - here's my suggestion written down as probably-useable code (meaning I didn't test it). It installs a filter on the STDOUT filehandle before script execution so no tainted data is allowed to print. Obviously if you start handling user-input prior to this INIT block then that isn't covered but you shouldn't do that anyway.

This can be enhanced by using an exception

package Filter::Handle::Tainted; # Put this code into the package just to have a reasonable # place to live. use Filter::Handle qw(subs); use Taint qw(tainted); use Exception::Class qw(Filter::Handle::Tainted::TaintException); INIT { Filter \ *STDOUT, sub { for (@_) { next unless tainted( $_ ); # Tainted data was about to be printed to # the handle. Throw an exception instead. Filter::Handle::Tainted::TaintException -> throw( error => "Tainted data may not be written to this +io handle." ); } }; }

Fun Fun Fun in the Fluffy Chair
