I think your best option is to pass the session id on the request, with a parameter or a path component:

http://my.site.net/the/path/to/the/page/SESSIONID

or

http://my.site.net/the/path/to/the/page?sid=SESSIONID

or something to that effect.

I personally prefer the first method, since it's less confusing to spiders and bots (and I'd like my site to be indexed by search engines).

Perl is strongly typed, it just has very few types (Dan)

[Eily]: I just wrote a oneliner to solve a (non perl) colleague's problem, and it worked on the first try
[Eily]: and he wasn't impressed
1nickt adds gingersnaps to the platter on the sideboard.
[Eily]: sure it was a pretty standard one liner (of the $h{$1} = $2 if /regex/; END { pp \%h; } variety), but he's not supposed to know that!
[Eily]: what's the point of writing perl if people aren't impressed :P
[sierpinski]: Haha
[Discipulus]: i'm with you!
