An excellent comment.

Any good, though not necessarily experienced, programmer will know their own level of incompetance. I've been programming for a long time, but I know I'm dangerous when I'm writing production code in a new area I'm inexperienced in. I'm especially dangerous if I don't have any emotion of fear since I think I'm doing fine even though I'm probably heading for the abyss. As others have mentioned, design/code reviews are a must to keep me honest.

Security is like error checking, you must build it into the design from the start and the quality/quantity of it must be in direct proportion to the damage that can be caused if you don't get it right. If it's some silly little app you are running on your machine from home, who cares if it gets hacked. If you are taking a CC number think "testify", "jail time", "bankruptcy" (esp. if it happens to be mine :-).

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
