As I wrote on your cross post on the dev shed forum, yes, that is more or less the basic idea.
Re: [hamidi] 910926 - what's the difference between -T and -t?
[In reply to]
From the Perlrun manpage documentation:
Like -T, but taint checks will issue warnings rather than fatal errors. These warnings can now be controlled normally with 'no warnings qw(taint)'.
Note: This is not a substitute for -T ! This is meant to be used only as a temporary development aid while securing legacy code: for real production code and for new secure code written from scratch, always use the real -T.
See http://perldoc.perl.org/perlrun.html for more details.
BTW, the -w option should no longer be used for new code, use the 'use warnings' pragma instead.
