in reply to try to send cookie and redirect

This snippet works in one of my applications just fine, I think it meets your requiremeents for the most part. This is from a web-based login that redirects to the calling script.

Create and set cookie, then redirect.

my $cookie_name = "FOO" . $E . "SID"; my $SID_cookie = new CGI::Cookie(-name => $cookie_name, -value => $sid, -path => '/', -expires => "+2h", -domain => '', ); print "Set-Cookie: " . $SID_cookie . "\n"; print $q->redirect("$redirectURL");

    If you used CGI's named arguments-style, there's no need to craft your own 'Set-Cookie' header: redirect will do it for you, just like header.

    print $cgi->redirect( -uri => $new_url, -cookie => $cookie );

[Lady_Aleena]: Rigth now I'm ranting in my head about an old subject.
[1nickt]: Hm, that is, how to prevent Perl from turning 1.0 into 1? I feel sure this must be an faq, but am reading perlnum and not finding the answer ...
[Lady_Aleena]: 1nickt, why does it matter in this case?
[1nickt]: Hm, perhaps this? "Operators which expect an integer force the argument into the integer format."
[1nickt]: Can this be? So print
[1nickt]: ... "expects an integer" ?
