in thread Stay logged in between requests with WWW::Mechanize

I'm not an expert at this, but why would a browser, or WWW:Mechanize write a session cookie to a file? It's only supposed to be around as long as the browser is running, so keeping it in memory only makes sense.

    That's logical, but I want it to DWIW!

    I guess the logical thing is that I would keep my script running in an endless loop, i.e. instead of a cron job running every five minutes, I run my script with while(1) and a five-minute sleep()?

    I don't love that idea.



    Nobody says perl looks like line-noise any more
    kids today don't know what line-noise IS ...

      Have you tried what the Anonymous Monk suggested?  from HTTP::Cookies:

      ignore_discard: save even cookies that are requested to be discar +ded (bool)

      Sounds like made for exactly that purpose...
