I implemented a very simple session module which mostly works --- it worked well enough for the task I had at the time. It generates an opaque session identifier which corresponds to the name of a file on disk containing pickled session data. As I look at it now, it isn't robust in the face of multiple clients sharing the session id, but as I said it was written in about twenty minutes for an internal app. > Oh, and if anyone has some experience with existing session modules I would > be open to suggestion (I have seen a few around).

Are there any decent ones? I remember doing a brief search and not finding anything I immediately liked. I'd certainly be interested in tossing my code over the fence as the seed for a more robust session manager. -tree -- Tom Emerson Basis Technology Corp.
