NAME ^

Captcha::reCAPTCHA::Mailhide - A Perl implementation of the reCAPTCHA Mailhide API

VERSION ^

This document describes Captcha::reCAPTCHA::Mailhide version 0.7

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Captcha::reCAPTCHA::Mailhide;

For complete examples see the /examples subdirectory

DESCRIPTION ^

reCAPTCHA is a hybrid mechanical turk and captcha that allows visitors who complete the captcha to assist in the digitization of books.

From http://recaptcha.net/learnmore.html:

    reCAPTCHA improves the process of digitizing books by sending words that
    cannot be read by computers to the Web in the form of CAPTCHAs for
    humans to decipher. More specifically, each word that cannot be read
    correctly by OCR is placed on an image and used as a CAPTCHA. This is
    possible because most OCR programs alert you when a word cannot be read
    correctly.

This Perl implementation is modelled on the PHP interface that can be found here:

http://recaptcha.net/plugins/php/

INTERFACE ^

reCAPTCHA Mailhide

To use reCAPTCHA Mailhide you need to get a public, private key pair from this page:

http://mailhide.recaptcha.net/apikey

The Mailhide API consists of two methods mailhide_html and mailhide_url. The methods have the same parameters.

The _html version returns HTML that can be directly put on your web page. The username portion of the email that is passed in is truncated and replaced with a link that calls Mailhide. The _url version gives you the url to decode the email and leaves it up to you to place the email in HTML.
