Re: Is it possible to have 2 CAP::Sessions?

in reply to Is it possible to have 2 CAP::Sessions?

Wow, thanks!

So, are we looking at something like:

$self->session_config( SESSION_NAME => 'SESSION_ID1', COOKIE_PARAMS => { -path => '/', }, SEND_COOKIE => 1, ); $self->session->param('user' => 'Barney'); $self->session_config( SESSION_NAME => 'SESSION_ID2', COOKIE_PARAMS => { -path => '/', }, SEND_COOKIE => 1, ); $self->session->param('user' => 'Fred');

And then to retrieve it later:

$self->session_config( SESSION_NAME => 'SESSION_ID1', ); my $user = $self->session->param('user'); $self->session_config( SESSION_NAME => 'SESSION_ID2', ); my $user = $self->session->param('user');

Two questions:
1. So CAP::Sessions won't complain about invoking session_config twice because I'm using the specific SESSION_NAME's?
2. How do I implement/install the patch on my server? (sorry, I'm not sure how all this works yet)

    1. So CAP::Sessions won't complain about invoking session_config twice because I'm using the specific SESSION_NAME's?

    That's the idea, yeah. Also make sure you pass a different -name to the COOKIE_PARAMS for each. If you do that, then both cookies will be set, as long as you do both calls to session_config.

    2. How do I implement/install the patch on my server? (sorry, I'm not sure how all this works yet)

    I don't recommend you use it for anything important since it's completely untested and I wrote it in a BBQ-induced stupor around 3AM. But if you really want to try it, download the CAP::Session tarball from CPAN, unpack it, and patch the files with the .diff attached to the RT ticket. Then use the Build.PL script as usual to build it. You might want to specify a prefix to install the module somewhere else so it doesn't overwrite your "real" install of CAP::Session.

[Discipulus]: php does not suck anymore?
[ambrus]: Discipulus: I'm not sure, but it certainly doesn't suck as much as it's used to. it's like C++, it sucks because people still recursively learn from twenty year old PHP examples,
[ambrus]: and they try to use the obsolete features that PHP has to support only for compatibility with old scripts. C++ and PHP both have the problem that people can't forget the past, because when they google "PHP" plus the problme they want to solve, they find b
[ambrus]: ad code examples.
[ambrus]: I'm not trying to recommend PHP, but I think it has way too bad a name because of its past.
[ambrus]: This is different from MS Word, which was already a good editor in the pre-unicode days (in word for windows versions 2 and 6, which ran on windows 3 but also on windows 95), only it wasn't trying to solve the task of writing maths papers back then.
[Discipulus]: ah ok, sounds reasonable; with no fear: Perl all life long
[ambrus]: Mind you, LaTeX is currently still useful for writing math paper or snippet content without styling in such a way that the
[ambrus]: formatting conventions of a journal or website can be quickly applied to it, and MS Office and LibreOffice has not quite solved this (although it's better for this than it used to be),
