Dobrica Pavlinušić's random unstructured stuff
Perly: Revision 6

Very small Jifty application which enables execution of perl code within browser. This is a gapping security hole. You have been warned. Source code is in subversion so feel free to checkout it and play with it.

Aside from that, it's a nice tool to learn perl on the web, without need to install anything on local machine. In fast, that's why it was written.


  • upload or copy/paste code or input
  • edit code using JavaScript syntax highlighted editor
  • run scripts from browsers and get command-line equivalent output
  • resolve dependencies within code (needed to dump all files required for run)

Security holes:

  • It execute any code entered by user on server. It will timeout it after 5s (configurable in config.yml)
  • User can require any module installed on system (there is FIXME comment in code, but I'm not sure that white listing of modules would be usable).
  • There was an error: 404 Not Found
