NAME

Data::Uniqid - Perl extension for simple genrating of unique id's

SYNOPSIS

  use Data::Uniqid qw ( suniqid uniqid luniqid );
  
  $id = suniqid;
  $id = uniqid;
  $id = luniqid;

DESCRIPTION

Data::Uniqid provides three simple routines for generating unique ids. These ids are coded with a Base62 systen to make them short and handy (e.g. to use it as part of a URL).
  suinqid
    genrates a very short id valid only for the localhost and with a 
    liftime of 1 day
  
  uniqid
    generates a short id valid on the local host 
  luniqid 
    generates a long id valid everywhere and ever
