ops - Perl pragma to restrict unsafe operations when compiling


  perl -Mops=:default ...    # only allow reasonably safe operations

  perl -M-ops=system ...     # disable the 'system' opcode


Since the ops pragma currently has an irreversable global effect, it is only of significant practical use with the -M option on the command line.

See the the Opcode manpage module for information about opcodes, optags, opmasks and important information about safety.

We are painfully aware that these documents may contain incorrect links and misformatted HTML. Such bugs lie in the automatic translation process that automatically created the hundreds and hundreds of separate documents that you find here. Please do not report link or formatting bugs, because we cannot fix per-document problems. The only bug reports that will help us are those that supply working patches to the installhtml or pod2html programs, or to the Pod::HTML module itself, for which I and the entire Perl community will shower you with thanks and praises.

If rather than formatting bugs, you encounter substantive content errors in these documents, such as mistakes in the explanations or code, please use the perlbug utility included with the Perl distribution.
