URLs and email addresses are never "unsafe" when handled safely. So if you're looking for Email::Valid, it's done.

And why you would be passing a date, time, or name near a shell. I'm still confused. That's still thinking from the wrong end.

As for your DROP TABLE example, if you are using placeholders correctly, that value wouldn't matter.

So, I'm still not convinced that there needs to be a standard "untainting" library. When the data is handled properly, we don't need to "match" "safe" data. Period.

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.
