NAME

Data::UUID::Base64URLSafe - URL-safe UUIDs

SYNOPSIS

  use Data::UUID::Base64URLSafe;
  my $ug = Data::UUID::Base64URLSafe->new;
  my $uuid = $ug->create_b64_urlsafe;

DESCRIPTION

Data::UUID creates wonderful Globally/Universally Unique Identifiers (GUIDs/UUIDs). This module is a subclass of that module which adds a method to get a URL-safe Base64-encoded version of the UUID using MIME::Base64::URLSafe. What that means is that you can get a 22-character UUID string which you can use safely in URLs.

  my $ug = Data::UUID::Base64URLSafe->new;

create_b64_urlsafe

Create a URL-safe Base64-encoded UUID:

   my $uuid2 = $ug−>create_from_name_b64_urlsafe(<namespace>, <name>);
