in thread How do I get scripts to run with Taint mode on IIS?
It's very easy to say "well, you can do taint checking without taint mode on". And yes, you are right. But your comment "such a thing wouldn't likely occur to someone who knows what they are doing." is counter-intuitive.
A good programmer thinks not only of what (s)he is capable of, but also that the code will be maintained in the future -- maybe by someone else. Not using tainting invites three forms of disaster:
For this solution, the performance hit is quite tiny. In large environments where performance would be a significant issue, one would likely be able to make the case with the admin staff to set up a perl -T association.
