CGI::Shorten - Creating your shortened links
This module may help you to build a personal shortening-link service. Feeding the long, verbose, and tedious url, it can return you a shortened one. And it can also print out redirection header in you CGI script.
$sh = new CGI::Shorten (
db_prefix => ".shorten_",
script_url => 'http://my.host/shorten.pl',
You need to specify the prefix of databases to the constructor and may specify the url of the script that does the shortening task. The script's url defaults to 'http://127.0.0.1/shorten.pl'
If the redirected url does not exist, it will return 404 Not Found.
This module is free software; you can redistribute it or modify it under the same terms as Perl itself.
To install CGI::Shorten, copy and paste the appropriate command in to your terminal.
perl -MCPAN -e shell
