CGI::Session::ID::static - CGI::Session ID Driver for generating static IDs

use CGI::Session;
$session = CGI::Session->new( 'driver:mysql;id:static', $ENV{REMOTE_ADDR}, { Handle => $dbh } );

CGI::Session::ID::static is used to generate consistent, static session ID's. In other words, you tell CGI::Session ID you want to use, and it will honor it.

Unlike the other ID drivers, this one requires that you provide an ID when creating the session object; if you pass it an undefined value, it will croak.
