Functions

The function makeashorterlink will call the http://TinyURL.com web site passing it your long URL and will return the shorter version.

The function makealongerlink does the reverse. makealongerlink will accept as an argument either the full URL or just the identifier.

If anything goes wrong, then either function will return undef.
