Subject: redirect() docs should clarify that most headers, including cookies, are ignored.
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 534b
These docs should be added to the docs for the redirect() header: All names arguments recognized by header() are also recognized by redirect(). However, most HTTP headers, including those generated by cookie and -target, are ignored by the browser. That tip is from: Official Guide to Programming with CGI.pm Lincoln Stein Wiley 1998 P 225 This some CGI::Application / CGI::Session users were bitten by this, and a bug report related to it has already been filed for CGI::Session: https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=40751
This patch has been applied in my git repo now.
Subject: released, thanks.
I believe this change was released today as part of CGI.pm 3.45. Thanks for the contribution.
