#1 Thanks for the great example and indepth reply...I'll find it very useful for completing my project!

#2. I didn't say I "couldn't" use, I said that by the time the admin folks got it functional...I'd already completed an enormous amount of code and I "can't" sometimes use it and sometimes not use it because the form data defaults to $foo->param and is as a result unavailable to the existing 3k lines of code already developed.

#3. I didn't say I "Couldn't" unset headers..I was asking if there was a way to unset them...that is really the gist of the original post. You've answered that question with the undef() idea and you've also given me another option using the CGI::Cookie module that will not interfere with my form processing and for that I am Greatful beyond words!

I've solved my issue today while at work, there were a couple of syntax errors along with a need to change my method for writing the headers...and VIOLA, I am a cookie connoisseur!

I seriously cannot believe how difficult it is to find a good reference book for programming in CGI/PERL/ I've purchased 6 books since starting this project and find myself constantly frustrated at how scattered they are! They either expect you to follow their strict programming styles totally or you can't use their examples, or they skip and jump around..never really DEFINING and ILLUSTRATING any one issue in any depth! THANK GOD (OR IS IT MONKS!?!) for this site!! TexasTess
