ok has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm developing a webapp that requires user authentication (and hence sessions).

I've browsed CPAN and seen a bunch of related modules, but I'm having trouble choosing one (or a combo) as some seem like neat ideas but appear to be half-baked right now.

What modules are you Perl Monks using in practice?

    CGI::Session was very easy to set up and get working with.

    Check out the CGI::Session::Cookbook for useful examples (despite a few typos).

    =~y~b-v~a-z~s; print
      I agree. I've used CGI::Session on a few projects now and have been quite happy with how it works. It's easy to use, and provides easy access to storing sessions in files or databases. Have a look at it!
