perl-Apache-Session - Persistence framework for session data…  more info»



    24 February 2004                  Jeffrey W. Baker <>    



This is Apache::Session 1.86

These modules provide persistent storage for arbitrary data, in arbitrary
backing stores.  The details of interacting with the backing store are
abstracted to make all backing stores behave alike.  The programmer simply
interacts with a tied hash.

Required for testing: Test::More, Test::Deep, Test::Exception, File::Temp
Required for work: Storable, constant

Most of Apache::Session's functions require Digest::MD5.

If you wish to use the DBI backing stores, you need the latest version of DBI
and the driver for your database.  Currently MySQL, Postgres, and Oracle are

Use CPAN's or CPANPLUS's shell.


tar -xvzf Apache-Session-1.86.tar.gz
