Data::Session::ID::UUID16 - A persistent session manager
See Data::Session for details.
See "Case-sensitive Options" in Data::Session for important information.
To use this module do this:
Creates a new object of type Data::Session::ID::UUID16.
new() takes a hash of key/value pairs, some of which might mandatory. Further, some combinations might be mandatory.
The keys are listed here in alphabetical order.
They are lower-case because they are (also) method names, meaning they can be called to set or get the value at any time.
- o verbose => $integer
Print to STDERR more or less information.
Typical values are 0, 1 and 2.
This key is normally passed in as Data::Session -> new(verbose => $integer).
This key is optional.
Generates the next session id, or dies if it can't.
The algorithm is Data::UUID -> new -> create_bin.
Returns the new id.
Note: A UUID16 hex string is not necessarily a valid UTF8 string, so you can't use UUID16 to generate ids which are to be stored in a Postgres table if the database was created like this (in psql):
create database a_db owner an_owner encoding 'UTF8';
Warning: This also means you should never try to use 'driver:File;id:UUID16;...', since the ids generated by this module would rarely if ever be valid as a part of a file name.
Returns 16 because that's the number of bytes in a UUID16 digest.
This can be used to generate the SQL to create the sessions table.
