NAME

CGI::Session::ID::MD5_Base32 - CGI::Session ID driver based on Base32 encoding

SYNOPSIS

    use CGI::Session;

    $session = new CGI::Session("id:MD5_Base32", undef, { Directory => '/tmp' };

DESCRIPTION

CGI::Session::ID::MD5_Base32 is to generate MD5 digest Base32 encoded random ids. The library does not require any arguments.

 There are two reasons why to use it
  - shorter string result
  - case insensibility

( both very usefull for user login and other similar purposes, keyboard inputs, email contained codes, etc... )
