Session Cookies

Hi,

I'm looking for a way to handle cookies that expire after you close the browser window. I've looked thru a couple of Cookie tutorials but apparently none discusses this.

Sourceforge uses this kind of session cookies, but they also use SSL at the same time, so I'm kinda confused...

Thanks & Greetz

Re: Session Cookies

All is explained in http://home.netscape.com/newsref/std/cookie_spec.html

In short, if you don't set expires, you get a session cookie.
