in thread WWW::Mechanize and Cookies

NOTE: I haven't used cookies with WWW::Mechanize, but I've used them with LWP. So take this post with a grain of salt.

I have used them and it works exactly as dorko's answer explain.

    I use cookies with WWW::Mechanize, but not only saving cookies for the session, saving cookies for later sessions as set by the site's "remember me on this computer"* checkbox.

    my $browser = WWW::Mechanize->new( cookie_jar => { file => "$ENV{HOME}/.cookies.txt", autosave => 1 } );

    That script logged into the NY Times two years ago and has stayed logged in ever since.

    * It should be "remember me on this computer with this browser" of course, but what the hell...
