But this is beside the point. It is reasonably straightforward to untaint data, prior to checking for SQL type compatibility. my $inputstring =~ s/^(\w+)$//; my $username = $1;

Care must be taken though that all strings are received as UTF-8, otherwise \w matches only ASCII letters and not only Mr. 毛泽东 but also Assunção Verônica Álvares, Renée Bäcker and Kryštůfek Březový would get thrown to the "Go away, 33vu1 haxx0r!" page if they used their proper names spelled properly :)

    This would be the reason then, that when I looked up the \w in the regex tutorials \w is mentioned as matching alphanumerics, underscores and others. That was just a quick look. After going back just now, I can see there is a lot of information peppered throughout the various regex tutorials relating to the encoding.

    In the meantime, I have updated the Ascii \w in my post to include the numerics as well as the alphas. And added some links to perlsec and perlrequick.
