in thread ANNOUNCE: CGI::Session::Simple

Thanks for your reply. I wasn't sure if Apache::Session worked outside Apache or mod_perl. Thankyou for clearing that up.

Looking again at the docs for Apache::Session, the thing that seems to be missing there is timing-out the session. Admitedly, it would be easy to do this yourself in your application - adding a timestamp or something to the session. But I need to look more closely at it to see if this is the case.

Given that Apache::Session is not dependent upon Apache and the existance of Apache::Session::CacheAny, I think perrin is right - this module is redundant, and I shan't be uploading it to the CPAN. But, it was a worthwhile exercise and it will be available on my website if anyone is interested.

Cheers, Simon

    As you said, it is redundant. But isn't it fun to build something from scratch, and better, to look back and see the lessons you've learned. Reinventing the wheel _can be_ fun, and sometimes it's even useful. I'd guess that it was some of both for you. :-)
