CGI::Application is meant to be subclassed. This means that you're supposed to write a class that uses it as a starting point. When I write C::A apps, I actually have 2-3 levels of baseclasses. The first one is my global baseclass. It's my version of what C::A should do. This includes providing a print() method that dispatches between HTML::Template, Excel::Template, and PDF::Template. I see no reason why you shouldn't go ahead and provide a param()-type method in your global baseclass that will untaint the parameters as you need them. You could even link it with CGI::Untaint as so:
sub cgiapp_prerun { my $self = shift; $self->param( handler => CGI::Untaint->new( $self->query->Vars ) ) +; return $self->SUPER::prerun( @_ ); } sub extract { my $self = shift; my ($method, $name) = @_; my $handler = $self->param( 'taint_handler' ); return $handler->extract( $method => $name ); }
Now, your calls to $self->extract() are wrappers around CGI::Untaint's extract(). Done.

  • In general, if you think something isn't in Perl, try it out, because it usually is. :-)

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.
