Cookies anyone? Can't Post

Can anyone show me the bare bones, extreme basics of setting/reading cookies? I read an online tutorial that explained about cookies but the only example was a counter script using cookies and I can't tell which is the script and which I acyually need to set the cookie. Thanks.

I used information from the cgi module to create and read cookies..... I've got the script here

$cookie = $query->cookie(-name=>'answers',
print $query->header(-cookie=>$cookie);

To retrieve a cookie

use CGI;
$query = new CGI;
%answers = $query->cookie(-name=>'answers');
# $query->cookie('answers') will work too!

I've got the help file.... just mail me at

If you want the full power of using cookies without the hassels of developing the code or your own module of code I recommend getting the cookie module from Matt's Script Archive and use it with your programs. It is also an excellent module to tear apart and learn cookies with.
