String::Koremutake(3) User Contributed Perl DocumentationString::Koremutake(3)

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

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
