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 KoremutakeMemorable Random Strings.

The term ``Memorable Random String'' was thought up by Sean B. Palmer asa name for those strings like dopynl, glargen, glonknic, spoopwiddle,and kebble etc. that don't have any conventional sense, but can beused as random identifiers, especially in URIs to keep thempersistent. 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 plainlanguage, a way to express any large number as a sequence ofsyllables. The general idea is that word-sounding pieces ofinformation 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 aKoremutake string:

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

koremutake_to_integer($s)

The koremutake_to_integer method converts a Koremutake string to theinteger it represents:

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