       Jifty::Web::Session - A Jifty session handler

       In your etc/config.yml (optional):

	     # The default ($PORT is replaced by the port the app is running on)
	     SessionCookieName:	JIFTY_SID_$PORT

       Returns a new, empty session.

       Returns the session's id	if it has been loaded, or "undef" otherwise.

       Assign a	new ID,	and store it server-side if necessary.

   load	[ID]
       Load up the current session from	the given "ID",	or the appropriate
       cookie (see "cookie_name") otherwise.  If both of those fail, creates a
       session in the database.

   load_by_kv key => value
       Load up the current session from	the given (key,	value) pair. If	no
       matching	session	could be found,	it will	create a new session with the
       key, value set.	Be sure	that what you're loading by is unique. If
       you're loading a	session	based on, say, a timestamp, then you're	asking
       for trouble.

       Flush the session, and leaves the session object	blank.

       Returns true if the session has already been loaded.

   get KEY [TYPE]
       Returns the value for "KEY" for the current user's session.  "TYPE",
       which defaults to "key",	allows accessing of other namespaces in	the
       session,	including "metadata" and "continuation".

   set KEY => VALUE, [TYPE]
       Sets the	value "VALUE" for "KEY"	for the	session.  "TYPE", which
       defaults	to "key", allows values	to be set in other namespaces,
       including "metadata" and	"continuation".	"VALUE"	can be an arbitrary
       perl data structure -- "Jifty::Web::Session" will serialize it for you.

   remove KEY, [TYPE]
       Remove key "KEY"	from the cache.	 "TYPE"	defaults to "key".

       Removes the session from	the database entirely.

   set_continuation ID CONT
       Stores a	continuation in	the session.

   get_continuation ID
       Pulls a continuation from the current session. Expects a	continuation

   remove_continuation ID
       Removes a continuation with id "ID" from	the store.

       Return a	hash of	all the	continuations in this session, keyed by	the
       continuations' "id".

       Sets the	session	cookie.

       Returns the current session's cookie_name -- it is the same for all
       users, but varies according to the port the server is running on.

   expires [VALUE]
       Get or set the session's	expiration date, in a format expected by

perl v5.32.0			  2013-01-29		Jifty::Web::Session(3)
