You left out a simple example or two on how to specify what you will allow. So, Allow me =)
my $file = $cgi->param( 'file' ); my $data; # # One way # $file =~ s#[^A-Z0-9a-z.]+##g; #strip down to alphanum and period # can change the meaning of what people post. $file =~ m#(.*)#; #evil evil evil if you haven't striped. $data = $1 || ""; #not really necessary to have alternate, nice tho. # # Alternate way # $file =~ m#([A-Z0-9a-z.]+)#; #grab first good chunk. # can potentially ignore a lot of data and boggle the user $data = $1 | ""; #you really want this now, match can fail. # # My "best" way # die "Eeeek! Evil data sent to the 'file' parameter!\n" if ($file =~ m#[^A-Z0-9a-z.]#); #now use the first method above to detaint anyway...

$you = new YOU;
honk() if $you->love(perl)
