Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
My web pages use SSI to call perl scripts which generate dynamic data in certian areas of the page. I need to be able to include security mechanisms into the perl scripts so I don't accidenty allow a non-authorized user to get protected information.
Just looking for some examples of perl-based login routines and how to track the session etc.
Myself, I rolled my own user authentication object that encapsulates sessions, cookies, userids, database access, etc. It's built upon several available CPAN modules. Then I simply call it wherever I want pages to be password protected.
