Subject: Support for cookie path and domain
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 260b
I need to configure the "path" of my session cookie. I'm attaching a patch to support it. The path defauts to / (as currently) but can be redefined, as the name is. I don't need it right now but support for the domain of the cookie is also added in the patch.

Hello Xavier, Thanks for the feedback on CGI::Session, as well as the patch. It's my opinion that CGI::Session should not do anything more with cookie management. It appears that your interest here is to set some easy defaults that are used for all your cookies. My suggestion for this to use a wrapper layer, like the CGI::Application plugin that has a section for cookie defaults: http://search.cpan.org/~ceeshek/CGI-Application-Plugin-Session-1.03/lib/CGI/Application/Plugin/Session.pm#session_config ( This is what I do myself to achieve the same goal. ) Or make your own tiny subclass that overrides the new, header() or cookie methods (whichever you need) so that your values are always set. Just drop in your new method and call $self->SUPER::header() (or whatever) in your method, so that you only have add the small additional bits you need, instead of rewriting a whole method. In any case, I don't think we would add any more global variables in the $CGI::Session:: name space. Those are no longer considered a best practice. I could be pursued otherwise if you wanted to discuss the topic on the mailing list and gather support from some other users. Mark
