in thread CGI programming

Although your answer correctly states how to set a cookie, that was not the point I was trying to make. Several people asked why they couldn't read a cookie when they had just set it. ie, they wanted to read the cookie in the same invocation of their script.

That was why I posted this question and answer combo.

[karlgoethebier]: perldigious: perhaps a block if you are paranoid ;-)
[choroba]: but undef %hash and %hash = () both work, too, but the first one keeps the memory allocated, while the latter makes it available for other parts of the program.
[choroba]: iirc
[perldigious]: karlgoethebier: Well it is a pretty old and complicated (for me) bit of code I wrote (poorly by my current standards), so I'm expecting everything to break when I add the scoping and find out what else is undesireably scope changed. :-)
[perldigious]: Ah, thanks choroba, that sort of thing was precisely what I was wondering when I asked.
[perldigious]: I didn't want to tie up memory unecessarily basically, I wanted to "delete" it specifically to free it up, and wasn't sure I was even accomplishing that.
