Dear Monks,

I am working on a cookie-managed community system but my cookies expire too inaccurately, in detail: too early.
I am using Apache 1.27x on a Win32 (NT 5.1) machine, ActiveState Perl 5.6 and the module CGI.
With the script shown below, the cookie is supposed to expire 10 minutes after being set. I have counted the time and found out that it actually expired after 8 minutes and ~50 seconds. When I do this test again with -expires => "+30s", the cookie won't be set at all.
Do you have any Ideas how this problem can be solved?
#!C:\Perl\bin\perl.exe use strict; use CGI; my $q = CGI->new(); my $service = $q->param('service') || ''; &printCookieContent() if ($service eq 'showcookie'); sub printCookieContent { my $cookie = $ENV{HTTP_COOKIE}; my ($name, $value) = split(m/=/, $cookie, 2); print $q->header('text/html'); print "$name<br>$value"; exit; } my $cookie = $q->cookie( -name => "Testname", -value => "Testvalue", -domain => "", -expires => "+10m", -path => "/cgi-bin" ); print $q->header(-type => 'text/html', -cookie => $cookie); print qq ~<a href="cookietest.cgi?service=showcookie">klick here to te +st the cookie</a>~; exit;
reading between the lines is my real pleasure

      It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
