Man, if your chat is supposed to be CGI, use FastCGI or some equivalent so that you don't have to worry about process -time variables (vars that die with the program). Store the stuff in hashes. You can use mmap later to service multiple client in shared memory. Otherwise (or if you NEED to store this stuff in a file, tie this stuff into an AnyDB. (be careful of multiple servers accessing data- you will need data/file synchronization) Even a better solution may be to store cookies (use CGI;). There's probably a Q&A section somewhere on perlmonks that discusses CGI/HTML authentication (without webserver style auth). But the random number check wil serve you fine checking the cookie against a hash.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
