cheers derby, the firebug link was the push in the right direction that I needed!

The header was being set fine, the 'problem' was because I handn't specified an 'expires' parameter, and my lack of understanding over how cookies are managed without it (IE wasn't bothering to write it to disk, which is where I was looking for it).

My problem didn't really exist! Sorry guys.

cheers for your help everyone.

PS: If anyone is interested, I got it working with the following snippet. (which is probably not how it will stay, but is a good simple example.)

my $session = new CGI::Session(undef, undef, {Directory=>'c:/temp/ +sessions'}); my $count = $session->param('count'); $session->param('count', $count + 1); my $cookie = $query->cookie( -name => $session->name, -value => $session->id ); $r->content_type('text/html'); $r->err_headers_out->add('Set-Cookie' => "$cookie; expires=Tue Jan + 01 00:00:01 2036 GMT"); $session->flush();
my name's not Keith, and I'm not reasonable.
