Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

Code review

[ #8304 ]

We're trying to find an open-source accounting package, preferably written in Perl, that we can integrate with some of our products. We have not been able to find any that seem to pass muster. I checked one today that, at first blush, looked like it might be acceptable. Then I started digging into the code and found many gems like the following.

    # Untaint $db, $args and $columns.
    $db =~ /(.*)/; $db = $1;
    $args =~ /(.*)/; $args = $1;
    $columns =~ /(.*)/; $columns = $1;
    $stripheader =~ /(.*)/; $stripheader = $1;
    my @entries = qx{ $ROW $args < $db $columns $stripheader };
