NAME

String::Koremutake - Convert to/from Koremutake Memorable Random Strings

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use String::Koremutake;
  my $k = String::Koremutake->new;

  my $s = $k->integer_to_koremutake(65535);        # botretre
  my $i = $k->koremutake_to_integer(koremutake); # 10610353957



DESCRIPTION

The String::Koremutake module converts to and from Koremutake Memorable Random Strings.

The term Memorable Random String was thought up by Sean B. Palmer as a name for those strings like dopynl, glargen, glonknic, spoopwiddle, and kebble etc. that don’t have any conventional sense, but can be used as random identifiers, especially in URIs to keep them persistent. See http://infomesh.net/2001/07/MeRS/

Koremutake is a MeRS algorithm which is used by Shorl (http://shorl.com/koremutake.php). As they explain: It is, in plain language, a way to express any large number as a sequence of syllables. The general idea is that word-sounding pieces of information are a lot easier to remember than a sequence of digits.

INTERFACE

new()

The new() method is the constructor:

    integer_to_koremutake($i)

The integer_to_koremutake method converts a positive integer to a Koremutake string:



  my $s = $k->integer_to_koremutake(65535);        # botretre



    koremutake_to_integer($s)

The koremutake_to_integer method converts a Koremutake string to the integer it represents:



  my $i = $k->koremutake_to_integer(koremutake); # 10610353957



BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

No bugs have been reported.
