After reviewing some of their code I do totally agree. I thought that I would post something that I found interesting. It seems like the non-perlish way to do the task.
sub GeneratePassword { @digit = ("A", "B", "C", "D", "E", "F", "G", "H", "J", "K", "L", "M", +"N", "P", "Q", "R", "S", "T", "U", "V", "W", "Y", "Z", "a", "b", "c", + "d", "e", "f", "g", "h", "j", "k", "m", "n", "p", "q", "r", "s", "t" +, "u", "v", "w", "y", "z", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8", "9"); srand(time); $num1 = rand(@digit); $num2 = rand(@digit); $num3 = rand(@digit); $num4 = rand(@digit); $num5 = rand(@digit); $num6 = rand(@digit); $RandomPassword = ("$digit[$num1]" . "$digit[$num2]" . "$digit[$num3]" + . "$digit[$num4]" . "$digit[$num5]" . "$digit[$num6]"); return($RandomPassword); }
I also found how they are getting the cookies, which seems to be what I am going to do. I am going to just get the cookies and check the user to the assigned cookies information. Here is what they had to get the cookies.
sub get_cookie { local($chip, $val); foreach (split(/; /, $ENV{'HTTP_COOKIE'})) { # split cookie at each ; (cookie format is name=value; name=va +lue; etc...) # Convert plus to space (in case of encoding (not necessary, b +ut recommended) s/\+/ /g; # Split into key and value. ($chip, $val) = split(/=/,$_,2); # splits on the first =. # Convert %XX from hex numbers to alphanumeric $chip =~ s/%([A-Fa-f0-9]{2})/pack("c",hex($1))/ge; $val =~ s/%([A-Fa-f0-9]{2})/pack("c",hex($1))/ge; # Associate key and value #undef($cookie{$chip}); next if (defined($cookie{$chip})); # \1 is the multiple separator #$cookie{$chip} .= "\1" if (defined($cookie{$chip})); # \1 is the +multiple separator $cookie{$chip} .= $val; } } # end SR NB - the other subroutines from this library [set-cookie, +split-cookie, delete-cookie] have not been included here.
