Well, yes, kinda. Cookies are name=value pairs, when you get down to it. But using CGI.pm, one doesn't really use them directly that way.
perldoc CGI says:
The interface to HTTP cookies is the cookie() method:
$cookie = $query->cookie(-name=>'sessionID',
In the example, $cookie is actually a hashref, or more accurately, a CGI::Cookie object.
Now to pass multiple cookies, you use a ref to an anonymous array, containing the cookie objects you wish to pass. CGI.pm continues:
To create multiple cookies, give header() an array reference:
$cookie1 = $query->cookie(-name=>'riddle_name',
-value=>"The Sphynx's Questio
$cookie2 = $query->cookie(-name=>'answers',
Hope this clarifies things a little.
