NAME

HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft − Access to Microsoft cookies files

VERSION

version 6.08

SYNOPSIS

use LWP;
use HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft;
use Win32::TieRegistry(Delimiter => "/");
my $cookies_dir = $Registry−>
{"CUser/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/Shell Folders/Cookies"};
$cookie_jar = HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft−>new(
file => "$cookies_dir\\index.dat",
'delayload' => 1,
);
my $browser = LWP::UserAgent−>new;
$browser−>cookie_jar( $cookie_jar );

DESCRIPTION

This is a subclass of "HTTP::Cookies" which loads Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x and 6.x for Windows ( MSIE ) cookie files.

See the documentation for HTTP::Cookies.

METHODS

The following methods are provided:
$cookie_jar = HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft−>new;

The constructor takes hash style parameters. In addition to the regular HTTP::Cookies parameters, HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft recognizes the following:

delayload: delay loading of cookie data until a request
is actually made. This results in faster
runtime unless you use most of the cookies
since only the domain's cookie data
is loaded on demand.

CAVEATS

Please note that the code DOESN ’T support saving to the MSIE cookie file format.
