Encoding/compress CGI GET parametersby snellm (Monk)
|on Jan 17, 2001 at 17:19 UTC||Need Help??|
snellm has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I frequently write systems that generate URL which are sent by email, for example:
I would like to alter this to:
where "dflskjdfsdkf" is the parameters encoded in some form. The advantage of doing this are:
- The URL is shorter (and therefore less likely to be split into two lines by an email package)
Any thoughts as to the best way to go about this?
PS: "pack" and "md5" come to mind.
