Need a good tutorial on cookies in Perl

Need a good tutorial on cookies in Perl

Anyone have any good resources for learning how to do cookies in Perl? Thanks in advance for your suggestions and recommendations.

RE: Need a good tutorial on cookies in Perl

Hello Haazi2,
If you 'use CGI.pm', it is a simple matter of invoking a method.  The CGI.pm docs lay it out reasonably well.

RE: Need a good tutorial on cookies in Perl

I second that - CGI.pm is definitely the easiest way to handle cookies.  You don't have to worry about encoding and decoding cookie values with spaces or special characters - it takes care of all that for you.

Sorry goBoating and hmerril, I overlooked the obvious again.
Thanks for reminding of the CGI.pm doc.
