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

We are developing an application which will interact with another php application.
There we need to maintain the session of php application in our perl application.
From, i got information about PHP::Session which is used
to maintain Perl application session shared with PHP.
Can anybody share some information on this module and other implementation options?

    It's quite simple:
    #!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use PHP::Session; use CGI::Lite; use Data::Dumper; my $session_name = 'PHPSESSID'; # change this if needed print "Content-type: text/plain\n\n"; my $cgi = new CGI::Lite; my $cookies = $cgi->parse_cookies; if ($cookies->{$session_name}) { my $session = PHP::Session->new($cookies->{$session_name}); # now, try to dump _s_pod variable from session print "_s_pod:",Dumper($session->get('_s_pod')); } else { print "can't find session cookie $session_name"; }
    Disclamer: I'm still not using PHP::Session in production, but this seem to work good enough for me.
    Hum, should this example should go into module documentation?
