Uhh, no that is exactly wrong. Clients are expected to ignore cookies that don't come from matching domains. If you request a resource from xxx.yyyy.com then the server that responds can set cookies for *.yyyy.com or xxx.yyyy.com but nothing else. What you are mixing in is the protection against you going to "http://www.xxx.com/" and that page calling a resource from "http://www.eviladplace.com/ad/tracker" and you picking up a cookie from a site you didn't even know you visited.

All the domain parameter is for is setting the depth into your own domain. That way a server at www.cs.xxx.edu can set one cookie for all *.xxx.edu and another at just *.cs.xxx.edu and one just for itself at www.cs.xxx.edu! If I could set cookies in the netscape.com domain for you from hostile.org you can be sure I would be... =)

LWP is most certainly the right answer tho! Look at HTTP::Request's perldocs specifically

$you = new YOU;
honk() if $you->love(perl)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
