I understand how to pass 'get' and 'post' data using LWP::UserAgent, but I need to pass a cookie. I read through CPAN's LWP and HTTP::Cookies and many of the posts on PM, but I'm just not getting it.

I see things like this that require a file to store cookies.

$cookie_jar = HTTP::Cookies->new(file => "$ENV{'HOME'}/lwp_cookies.dat +')

All I want to do is pass on a known cookie. So I tried this but it does not work.

use strict use CGI use LWP::UserAgent; ## Get cookie already set on browser. my $q = new CGI; my $value = $q->cookie('name'); my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; $ua->cookie_jar({ 'name'=> $value }); my $response = $ua->get(''); my $stats = ($response->is_success) ? $response->content : '';

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible editor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
