It might be nice to have a tool that is Perl with a taint mode or something like it left in for development and testing. The main language could have it completely gone so there's no performance penalty. Unfortunately if done just that way it's likely to rot. A completely separate analysis tool may be a better bet.

    I was about to recommend Ruby, but after a google search found out that Ruby has also removed taint checking mechanism in 2020. So that's that.

      I also use Ruby some, but usually not for the same projects as Perl. It wouldn't help much to use Ruby to check for proper input sanity in Perl code over using any other language for doing that. Using Ruby over Perl in general isn't a very useful pitch.
