Greetings learned monks,
I am using CGI.pm. Through the wisdom of fellow monks I sorted out an issue I had yesterday about getting a re-direct to work. The first item you "print" should be the redirect to make it work. However, due to a requirement change, I need to set a cookie before I action the redirect.
The following code fragment does not work, i.e. a cookie is set but no redirect takes place because there has been a "print" before the "redirect".
my $q = CGI->new;
my $cookie = $q->cookie(-name=>'lizzy',
print $q->redirect( -uri => 'http://perl.about.com/' );
Does anyone have any ideas how I can set the cookie and get the redirect to work?
