=head1 NAME

L<Data::Session::ID::UUID36> - A persistent session manager

=head1 Synopsis

See L<Data::Session> for details.

=head1 Description

L<Data::Session::ID::UUID36> allows L<Data::Session> to generate session ids using L<Data::UUID>.

To use this module do this:

=over 4

=item o Specify an id generator of type UUID36, as Data::Session -> new(type => '... id:UUID36 ...')


=head1 Case-sensitive Options

See L<Data::Session/Case-sensitive Options> for important information.

=head1 Method: new()

Creates a new object of type L<Data::Session::ID::UUID36>.

C<new()> takes a hash of key/value pairs, some of which might mandatory. Further, some combinations
might be mandatory.

The keys are listed here in alphabetical order.

They are lower-case because they are (also) method names, meaning they can be called to set or get
the value at any time.

=over 4

=item o verbose => $integer

Print to STDERR more or less information.

Typical values are 0, 1 and 2.

This key is normally passed in as Data::Session -> new(verbose => $integer).

This key is optional.


=head1 Method: generate()

Generates the next session id, or dies if it can't.

The algorithm is Data::UUID -> new -> create_str.

Returns the new id.

=head1 Method: id_length()

Returns 36 because that's the number of bytes in a UUID36 digest.

This can be used to generate the SQL to create the sessions table.
