TPF bug-grant report #47
Message ID:
Spent this week mostly trying to understand taint in regexps, as a prelude
to making /\p{IsuserDefined}/ be taint-aware. Turns out to be more complex
than the human mind can conceive (the flags RXf_TAINTED, RXf_TAINTED_SEEN,
PMf_RETAINT and RF_tainted all get involved, in addition to your basic taint
magic). As a useful side-effect of this, I updated Devel::Peek to dump the
body of a REGEXP SV.
