Authen::Captcha provides an object oriented interface to captcha file
creations. Captcha stands for Completely Automated Public Turing test to
tell Computers and Humans Apart. A Captcha is a program that can generate
and grade tests that:
- Most humans can pass.
- Current computer programs can't pass.
The most common form is an image file containing distorted text, which
humans are adept at reading, and computers (generally) do a poor job.
This module currently implements that method.
