    NAME
      raptcha.rb

    SYNOPSIS
      super low drain bamage, K.I.S.S., storage-less, session-less,
      plugin-less, dependency-less, zero admin, single-source-file secure
      captcha system for ruby and/or rails.

      bitchin.

    DESCRIPTION
      raptcha manages image generation via a streaming controller.  the result
      is that *no* disk storage is ever needed for captcha images.  it also
      manages authentication via openssl(aes-256) encoded hidden fields which
      are relayed through the form submission process, obviating the need for
      session/database interaction for captcha validation.  the library is
      useful outside of rails, even from the command line.

      what this means to you is that you can have a nice looking, and easy to
      customize, safe captcha solution in about 1 minute that requires zero
      maintenance moving forward.
