I am trying to have a "logout feature on a program and it sometimes works fine and sometimes does not.
I set a cookie (not with CGI.pm) like so.. (example)
print "Set-Cookie: username=$username\|\|$pass; expires=\"Wed 2 Jan 2001 23:59:59 GMT\n";
and now i want them to logout.. so i delete the cookies just by editing the expire date to 1987 for example.
This does work sometimes but other times it does not delete the cookie. (unless i do it manually from my PC)
The idea that i have in my head was that this would not delete because i have tested the program so many times that i have more than 1 cookie on my computer and for testing purposes i have set more cookies..
Should a cookie automatically overwrite itself it the same cookie is set with a different value?
Hope you can help,
