Bug in perl command line processing?by EvanCarroll (Chaplain)
|on May 22, 2012 at 20:06 UTC||Need Help??|
EvanCarroll has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I was playing around with some bugged command line processing by perl, and I discovered that I could execute code with -i. The argument -i is supposed to just turn on in place editing.
An example is provided: perl -i'foo e eval "warn q[bar]" '
I'm still not exactly sure how it works. Are there any security implications in this?
