Lots of times, Class::DBI is used in web-based applications. (In
fact, coupled with a templating system that allows you to pass
objects, such as Template::Toolkit, Class::DBI is very much your
friend for these.)
One of the most irritating things about writing web-based applications
is the monotony of writing much of the same stuff over and over again.
And, where there's monotony there's a tendency to skip over stuff that
is really important, but is a pain to write - like Taint Checking and
sensible input validation. (Especially as you can still show a 'working'
application without it!). CGI::Untaint can take care of a lot of that
for us.
It so happens that CGI::Untaint also plays well with Class::DBI. All
you need to do is to 'use Class::DBI::FromCGI' in your class (or in
your local Class::DBI subclass that all your other classes inherit
from. You do that, don't you?).
