willjones has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have checked the httpd.conf file and the perl.conf file that Apache uses and the PerlSwitches -T line is commented out. I did a grep for any file with the word 'taint' ignoring case, but couldn't uncover anything new. I have checked the individual script files and #/usr/bin/perl does not have a -T on it. However, for some reason I am still running in taint mode. I don't understand why? How can I control this? Is there another way of turning taint mode on/off globally for all files? Anyone have an idea as to why my files are still running in taint mode?

Thanks...
