As dvergin points out, browsers are perfectly capable of handling cookies sent with redirects. Fortunately, also supports it, though you have to dig a bit to be sure. The CGI pod indeed does not mention such a procedure, but it is supported. Browsing the code of the redirect sub in you can see:
#### Method: redirect # Return a Location: style header # #### 'redirect' => <<'END_OF_FUNC', sub redirect { my($self,@p) = self_or_default(@_); my($url,$target,$cookie,$nph,@other) = $self->rearrange([[LOCATION +,URI,URL],TARGET,COOKIE,NPH],@p); $url = $url || $self->self_url; my(@o); foreach (@other) { tr/\"//d; push(@o,split("=",$_,2)); } unshift(@o, '-Status'=>'302 Moved', '-Location'=>$url, '-nph'=>$nph); unshift(@o,'-Target'=>$target) if $target; unshift(@o,'-Cookie'=>$cookie) if $cookie; unshift(@o,'-Type'=>''); return $self->header(@o); }

Note in particular the -Cookie bit. And nicely enough, this actually works as intended. I've used bits like the following successfully:

$cookie = cookie( -name => $COOKIE_NAME, -value => $session_key, -expires => $COOKIE_EXPIRE, -path => $SCRIPT_PATH, -domain => $SCRIPT_DOMAIN, -secure => 0 ); ... print redirect( -uri => 'view.cgi', -cookie => $cookie );

I admit I'm not sure why OP's bit fails. r.jospeh, take a look at the cookie files for the site you're connecting to in order to make sure they're correct. Offhand, I'd suspect (like dvergin) a difference in $in{usr} and $usr is the problem. If not, you could set up a dirty HTTP server (with HTTP::Daemon, for instance) to see what's going on with your logout cookie.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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 janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
