Subject: _init_new_session() doesn't use session ID that was passed in to constructor
I want to be able to specify the session ID for a new session. When I pass a session ID into the constructor and the session doesn't already exist, CGI::Session goes ahead and generates a new ID for me. Patch: 183: return $self->_init_new_session($claimed_id); 295,6: my ($claimed_id) = @_; $claimed_id ||= $self->generate_id($self->{_OPTIONS}), 300: _SESSION_ID => $claimed_id,

To be able to specify your own IDs, checkout attached CGI::Session::ID::Static instead. -- Sherzod B. Ruzmetov <sherzodr@handalak.com> <URL: http://author.handalak.com >

Thank you very much for the module. I will test that. Would you be able to add this to the CGI::Session distribution? The reason I ask is that this would allow CGI::Session to be used with Randal Schwartz's suggestion of how to implement two-layer sessions, seen at http://www.stonehenge.com/merlyn/WebTechniques/col61.html

This is already a part of CGI-Session-4.0, which hasn't been released for the public yet. Planning to finish it up by fall. -- Sherzod

Now that CGI-Session-4.0 has a developer release out including this module, I think this ticket can be considered resolved. Mark
