in reply to (OT) Perl Open Source accounting packages?
To be honest, for accounting packages I'd have other concerns than it not using strict or not properly untainting CGI data. After all, this is intended for in house use only, and a program can work well even without strict. No, my main concern would be: does it not make mistakes? Most of all: does it use FP for money calculations, or does it do the proper thing and work with one of the BigNum extensions, properly used, as any good money calculation program should? Otherwise, you can get round off errors. Ack.
