DESCRIPTION

There are a lot of XSS, a security hole typically found in web applications, caused by incorrect (or lack of) JavaScript escaping. This module aims to provide secure JavaScript escaping to avoid XSS with JavaScript values.

The escaping routine JavaScript::Value::Escape provides escapes for q!"!, q!'!, q!&!, q!=!, q!-!, q!+!, q!;!, q!<!, q!>!, q!/!, q!\! and control characters to JavaScript unicode entities like "\u0026".

EXPORT FUNCTION

javascript_value_escape($value :Str) :Str

Escape a string. The argument of this function must be a text string (a.k.a. UTF-8 flagged string, Perl's internal form).

This is exported by default.

js($value :Str) :Str

Alias to javascript_value_escape() for convenience.

This is exported by your request.
