The standard mantra should work (as explained in perldoc CGI) when dealing with cookies.
Quoted from perldoc is an explanation to -path option:
"3. a path If you provide a cookie path attribute, the browser will check
it against your script's URL before returning the cookie.
For example, if you specify the path "/cgi-bin", then the cookie will be returned to each of
the scripts "/cgi-bin/tally.pl", "/cgi-bin/order.pl", and "/cgi-bin/customer_service/complain.pl",
but not to the script "/cgi-private/site_admin.pl". By default, path is set to "/", which causes
the cookie to be sent to any CGI script on your site."
