in thread Newbie Tainted glob question

You might be able to find the answer in this tpj article (would have linked to the official archive but it always seems to hang in my browser)

I have to admit that I don't understand it enough to actually answer your question, but the article above ends with:

And now you know why perl 5.004 has the new warning Too late for -T option. Taint mode isn't effective unless it's done from the very start, i.e. from the real command line. By the time yylex is called, a lot of taint-related things should already have happened, so perl can't guarantee that your data is safe. To avoid this problem, always make -T the first option on the shebang line.
So, I assume the answer can be found somewhere in there....
time for me to go read it myself, now.
