I maintain a website that uses a lot of perl, and depends on cookies. A friend put a bug in my ear and has me considering the idea of doing session management without cookies. The advantage that I see would be that I would not require users to accept cookies to use the website (I imagine cookies still scare some people).
Now I admit, I am not exactly a good perl hacker, and I still have very much to learn. While I did do a search on CPAN, and I found a couple of modules that I may be able to use, I'm still not exactly sure how I need to approach this. For that matter, I'm still not sure if I should.
First of all, should I consider switching to a non-cookie session management system for my website? I'd like to see arguments for or against this (as opposed to useing cookies). Second of all, if anyone has had some experience with this, maybe you could help me better understand what I really need to be learning. While a search on CPAN does yield a great deal on the topic, I'm not sure exactly what I would need.
Thank you for your help.
