true, which answers the "when not" for 75%

More often than not 5/2% Occasionally 21/7% Never 48/16% What is taint mode? 219/75%

But ...

I think you misread the 16%.

So (almost) 2/3 of the rest is NOT using it.


Anyway I don't think this is a good poll anyway.

There was no option for "always"

And if someone is not writing code dealing with untrusted input he'll rightfully say never.

Not all of us are web-devs, a decent survey would break that down on usage patterns.

FWIW: PM-Polls are mostly for fun, not information ...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
