$PERL5OPT environment variable

You may now put Perl options in the $PERL5OPT environment variable. Unless Perl is running with taint checks, it will interpret this variable as if its contents had appeared on a ``#!perl'' line at the beginning of your script, except that hyphens are optional. PERL5OPT may only be used to set the following switches: -[DIMUdmw].
