Data::GUID::URLSafe - url-safe base64-encoded GUIDs
use Data::GUID::URLSafe; my $guid = Data::GUID->new; my $string = $guid->as_base64_urlsafe; my $same_guid = Data::GUID->from_base64_urlsafe;
These strings are also safer for email addresses. While the forward slash is legal in email addresses, some broken email address validators reject it. (Also, without the trailing equals signs, these strings will be shorter.)
When Data::GUID::URLSafe is
use'd, it installs methods into Data::GUID using Sub::Exporter.
my $string = $guid->as_base64_urlsafe;
This method returns the URL-safe base64 encoded representation of the GUID.
my $guid = Data::GUID->from_base64_urlsafe($string);
