NAME

CGI::Untaint::object - base class for Input Handlers

SYNOPSIS

  package MyUntaint::foo;

  use base 'CGI::Untaint::object';

  sub _untaint_re {
    return qr/$your_regex/;
  }

  sub is_valid {
    my $self = shift;
    return is_ok($self->value);
  }

  1;

DESCRIPTION

This is the base class that all Untaint objects should inherit from.

METHODS TO SUBCLASS

is_valid / _untaint_re

Your subclass should either provide a regular expression in _untaint_re (and yes, I should really make this public), or an entire is_valid method.

METHODS TO CALL

value

This should really have been two methods, but too many other modules now rely on the fact that this does double duty. As an accessor, this is the 'raw' value. As a mutator it's the extracted one.

re_all / re_none

Regular expressions to match anything, or nothing, untained. These should only be used if you have already validated your entry in some way that means you completely trust the data.

untainted

Are we clean yet?
