I can think of two options, offhand:

1) Since you're already going to be storing some session state (mapping the cookie to the temp table's name, if nothing else), just add the last search terms to the retained state.

2) Instead of saving the search terms with the session info, you could also store it with the temp table (maybe even using the search terms as part of the table name, with appropriate precautions).

#1 is more straightforward, #2 allows you to reuse the search results for anyone else who does that same search (such as all the monks looking for SMITH JOHN right now). Either way, though, you probably want to maintain this on the server side instead of relying on the client to tell you which set of saved search results to use, since the client can lie to you quite easily.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • 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.
