in thread Correct Regex for reading stock symbol?

Thanks for all the help. I realized that It may not be that portion of the code thats causing a CGI Timeout. I'm pretty sure its because of the "O.O" part in the symbol "AIDO.OB" thats causing a breakage somewhere in my script. ALl other symbols work fine, and if I try adding a "." anywhere inside a symbol, it will stall. So for ex. IF I tried using "BLAH.SYMB" then it will still stall.

I guess I will try breaking down my script more and try to find the problem.

    What are you doing with the 'untainted' data?


      I found out where the problem is. I'm combining the symbol with a date generated. The file is supposed to be a stock symbol chart I have stored on my local drive. So I'm using the following code to see if it exists or not:
      my $extx = ".jpg"; my $fx = "2006-01-05"; if( -f "D:/stock_charts/$symbol$fx$extx" ) { $filename = $fx; $com_hash{'num'} = "$filename"; last; } #so the filename should look like "AIDO.OB2006-01-05.jpg"
      I think it has something to do with the proper tainting also. I'm going to try turning taint mode off to see if it stops it from timing out.
