Module Version: 0.005   Source   Latest Release: Data-GUID-URLSafe-0.006

NAME ^

Data::GUID::URLSafe - url-safe base64-encoded GUIDs

VERSION ^

version 0.005

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Data::GUID::URLSafe;

  my $guid = Data::GUID->new;

  my $string = $guid->as_base64_urlsafe;

  my $same_guid = Data::GUID->from_base64_urlsafe;

This module provides methods for Data::GUID that provide for URL-safe base64 encoded GUIDs, as described by MIME::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.

METHODS ^

as_base64_urlsafe

  my $string = $guid->as_base64_urlsafe;

This method returns the URL-safe base64 encoded representation of the GUID.

from_base64_urlsafe

  my $guid = Data::GUID->from_base64_urlsafe($string);
