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', -value=>'xyzzy', -expires=>'+1h', -path=>'/cgi-bin/database', -domain=>'.capricorn.org', -secure=>1); print $query->header(-cookie=>$cookie);

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 +n"); $cookie2 = $query->cookie(-name=>'answers', -value=>\%answers); print $query->header(-cookie=>[$cookie1,$cookie2]);

Hope this clarifies things a little.

cheers!

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
