Hello Monks...

May i ask for 10nanoseconds of your wisdom, please???

I am having a small problem with CGI::Session and i am stuck... (for 3 days now)

I have an html page (login.html) that asks for user and password. When entered, checks for them, if they are correct then it creates a sesion and launches checks if the session is valid. if so, then it shows the webpage but if not, it redirects to login.html

The problem is that it seems that the session created by $sesion=new CGI::Session(); is always empty when checked by . why???

Curiously, if the user enters the process twice (with correct credentials of course) then it works!!!
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use CGI; use CGI::Session; $cgi=new CGI; if (CredentialsOK($user,$pwd)){ $sesion=new CGI::Session(); $sesion->param('userlogged',$user); print $sesion->header(-location=>""); $sesion->flush(); } else { print $cgi->redirect(-uri=>"login.html"); }
#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use CGI; use CGI::Session; use HTML::Template; $cgi=new CGI; $sesion=CGI::Session->load($cgi); $plantilla=HTML::Template->new(filename => 'web.html'); $sesion=CGI::Session->load(); if (($sesion->is_expired) || ($sesion->is_empty)) { print $cgi->redirect(-uri=>"login.html"); } else { print $cgi->header(); print $plantilla->output(); }

Thanks to all in advance!!
