Q&A  > CGI programming


I am using CGI_Lite and I want to set a cookie and redirect to a url. I don't want to use which has a redirect method. Is there a way to redirect with setting a cookie and without using Thanks

Here's an example of how to do it using CGI's OO interface.

use CGI (); my $cgi = CGI->new(); my $cookie = $cgi->cookie(-name => 'test', -value => '1'); print $cgi->redirect(-uri => '', -cookie => $ +cookie);

Just print the headers like so:

print "Set-Cookie: name=value; path=path; domain=domain; expires=expir +es;\n"; print "Location:\n\n";

After you set your cookie, print out the following meta tag in the header of the file. It'll use the browser's refresh to direct you to a new page.

print qq~<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=url.html">\n~;
