LeGo has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am curious as to if any one here has ever worked with UBB. I am asking this for a specific reason. My room mate has a sight that uses UBB and he now would like to add to that site, by creating member profile areas, photo galaries and etc...

If you have a module, some subroutines, code, or basically anything that might help get me started on this project, I would appreciate it. I have some code written for the photo area but I am just using a dumbie variable for the user_name. I am in need of something to verify the user is whom they say they are (i.e. code to compare cookies to whatever it needs to be compared to).

All help is appreciated. I thought I would check before I delved into it.
