Taint mode... use all the time?by jfroebe (Parson)
|on Feb 11, 2005 at 17:40 UTC||Need Help??|
jfroebe has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I know using Taint mode can be a royal PIA for development, but I'm thinking it that maybe it is a good thing to have on all the time. I'm thinking of security and to, in a small way, S.M.A. when I type in one window thinking I'm in another (two monitors hooked up).
I'm viewing taint in the same light as 'strict' mode. Sure, it is a PIA to get used to, but it is better... isn't it? ;-)
My question is: is there any good reason NOT to use taint mode all the time (except maybe one liners)?
