    Taint....


    I am little curious is the Taint check option on by default? If not is there a way you can turn it on so that while you are running your scripts it will inform of any mistakes that can prove hazardous to the whole script itself.

    Taint is not enabled by default. You can turn it on by using command line arguments. They are as follows:

    -T enable tainting checks
    -t enable tainting warnings

    You use these at the command line or use them in scripts by putting them in the shebang (#!) .

    example: #!/usr/bin/perl -wT
    [ [ SykkN alloc ] initWithThePowerTo: destroyYouAll ];
    /* Don\'t make me use it! */
