    If that's all you need why not call CGI::Cookie or CGI::Simple::Cookie directly? You don't need to call CGI/CGI::Simple at all as these modules have their own APIs....

    use CGI::Cookie; use Data::Dumper; my %cookies = fetch CGI::Cookie; print "Content-type: text/html\n\n", Dumper \%cookies;




      It's a good idea. Unfortunately, CGI::Cookie requires CGI, which slows the script down massively. CGI::Simple::Cookie is measurably slower than CGI_Lite at this. Remember, compile times are part of it and that may be the only problem for CGI::Simple -- it uses two separate files.

      I'm currently working on getting fastCGI to run with this setup, because it's absurd to have to think about the number of files being used as a performance problem.
