Long url to tiny url.by valavanp (Curate)
|on Jul 07, 2007 at 08:27 UTC||Need Help??|
valavanp has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I need to convert a long url into tiny url.
For example in http://tinyurl.com, when you enter www.yahoo.com it makes into tinyurl as http://tinyurl.com/1hm. when you click this link it automatically goes to yahoo.com.
I want to know how this task is done. Did they do it by some algorithms or random number generation.
I searched in cpan, but i couldn't get. So monks, any of you had come across this kind of situation, please tell how to approach this.
Thanks monks for all your valuable time.
