in reply to Serializing Cookies ???

This code seems to work for me if I change from nfreeze to freeze as in the code below. I'm not sure what your error means, I was unable to duplicate it. Here are two scripts that I put together to test these routines.
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use CGI; use Storable qw(freeze); my $q = CGI->new(); sub make_cookie { $q->cookie( -name=>'Test', -value=>unpack("H*",freeze(['1245','foo','foopass'])), -path=>'/' ); } print $q->header(-cookie=>make_cookie()); print $q->start_html(-title=>'Test cookie'); print "Cookie Set<br>"; print $q->end_html;
and this to retrieve the cookie.
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use CGI; use Storable qw(thaw); my $q = CGI->new(); sub see_cookie { @{ thaw( pack("H*",$_[0]) ) }; } print $q->header(); print $q->start_html(-title=>'Test cookie'); print "Cookie Value: ", (join " -- ", see_cookie($q->cookie('Test')) ) +, "<br>"; print $q->end_html;
I tried these scripts under mod_perl also and they work in that enviorment also (Apache::Registry), I would take a look at your Storable module.

    Hmm maybe its the install of Storable on my machine, or maybe mod_perl has issues with Storable or vice versa?
