in reply to Mechanize and Cookie Confusion

No need to set up a cookie jar, Mechanize has a built-in one.
#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings FATAL => 'all'; use WWW::Mechanize qw(); use Data::Dumper qw(Dumper); my $url = 'http://www.google.com'; my $m = WWW::Mechanize->new; # do not disable autocheck, it's useful my $response = $m->get($url); my $cookie_jar = $m->cookie_jar; # returns a HTTP::Cookies object $cookie_jar->scan(sub { print Dumper \@_ }); # cookies are sent with subsequent requests $m->get($url);

When I create a cookie jar, does it mean that Mechanize will be using the cookie throughout the session?
Yes.
Do I even need to extract the cookie information and try to add it in the request header?
No, it's automatic, like the Mechanize documentation says.
do you use WireShark
Wireshark is fine with me.
