        clear_captcha;
    };

ABSTRACT

This plugin lets you use GD::SecurityImage in your Dancer application to create and verify captcha codes. It stores captcha data in your session, so you have to enable a session engine for Dancer.

EXPORTED FUNCTIONS

create_captcha

This function expects a hashref containing options that will be passed to the GD::SecurityImage constructor and methods.

validate_captcha

This function expects the value that your user entered in the form. It will check it against the real code stored in the Dancer session and return true if they match.

clear_captcha

This function will remove the captcha value from your session data so that it won't match again.

CONFIGURATION

Any option passed to the create_captcha function, except for random, can also be put in your config file:

    plugins:
      SecurityImage:
        new:
          width: 80
          height: 30
          lines: 10
          gd_font: giant
