I'm not an expert in Perl by any means, but here I went ahead and wrote a tiny login script. I would like to make the script as secure as possible, both from a malicious user entering in bogus data, and from my own dumb self :)
I have not gotten any responses in the Web Languages - CGI section, so I have no choice but to post a pointer question in the Perl forum (perhaps I should have posted it here in the first place?). Please take a look. Thank you.
