Data::Uniqid - Perl extension for simple genrating of unique id's
use Data::Uniqid qw ( suniqid uniqid luniqid ); $id = suniqid; $id = uniqid; $id = luniqid;
Data::Uniqid provides three simple routines for generating unique ids. These ids are coded with a Base62 systen to make them short and handy (e.g. to use it as part of a URL).
suinqid genrates a very short id valid only for the localhost and with a liftime of 1 day uniqid generates a short id valid on the local host luniqid generates a long id valid everywhere and ever
