barrycarlyon has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hey Fellow Monks

I want some advice regarding cookies, I have read some information on how to create them using the joys that is CPAN, but I would like to know the best module to use, and some sample code to write the cookie and any data in it

An example of what i want to do is:
Cookie Name: barrys_cookie
Data:
item_1yes
item_2Fudge
item_3((Unix or normal mysql)Timestamp)

Having read CPAN, (i cant remember which module it was), i usually have trouble trying to translate CPAN in to effective code

    "I have read some information on how to create them using the joys that is CPAN, but I would like to know the best module to use, and some sample code to write the cookie and any data in it"

    I think the documentation provides an example you should be able to follow.

    Hey

    One of the great things about CPAN is that it provides a lot of the code for you. Find the module that you think you need (perhaps CGI::Cookie), if you have questions about how to use it that either aren't in its documentation, or aren't clearly explained, ask again here and we'll be glad to help.

    Update: Added module link

      CGI::Cookie is the utility module that CGI uses for cookies. So if you use the latter, you're actually depending on the former.

      If you don't use CGI, you can still use CGI::Cookie directly.

      See the CGI docs on cookies for how to use the module transparently.
