Subject: Undocumented behavior of cookie() function with no arguments
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 361b
The documentation for CGI.pm doesn't specify the behavior of the cookie() function when called with no arguments. According to a comment in the code, cookie() follows the following rule: "# If no name is supplied, then retrieve the names of all our cookies." A sentence to this effect should be added to the documentation; its omission was surely unintentional.

I have reviewed the 3.43 release found that this recommendation is reflected there. Thanks for the suggestion! I believe this bug report can be considered resolved now. On Wed Oct 13 19:09:39 2004, guest wrote: Show quoted text
