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...
