I think the last paragraph should be highlighted. Do not remove bad things. Permit safe things.

A few weeks ago in a reply to someone in beginners@perl.org on similar topic I wrote:

  1. There is NO single list of dangerous characters. What characters are dangerous depends on the action you do with the data.
  2. If you or someone else creates a list of suspicious characters and test whether the data contain any of them, you are NOT safe. It's for sure you'll forget some character, it's for sure there is something you've never heard of that can go wrong.
  3. Always test whether the data DO CONTAIN ONLY ALLOWED characters. And allow only the characters you must.

Title:
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.
