httpd::cookie(n) 1.0 "Tcl Web Server"
httpd::cookie - Cookie management
package require httpd::cookie ?1.0?
The package httpd::cookie provides a number
for the specification of what cookies are and how they work.
- Cookie_Set (option value)...
Creates new cookie using the specified options and stores it
internally. See section Cookie options for the
allowed options and their meaning.
- Cookie_Save sock ?interp?
Takes all the cookies which were created in the specified interpreter
(via Cookie_Set) and instructs the Http protocol engine (see
package httpd) to return them to the browser. If no
interpreter is specified the current interpreter is used as data
- Cookie_Make (option value)...
Low-level command to encode the specified options into a cookie. The
generated cookie is not stored internally but returned as the result
of the command. See section Cookie options for the allowed
options and their meaning.
- Cookie_Get cookie
Looks in the environment created by the Http protocol engine (see
package httpd) for cookies sent by the browser and return a
list of cookie values which match the specified key (cookie).
Danger: This command prefers the data in the environment
variables (HTTP_COOKIE) over the data in the request status
array. This means that at certain points in the processing of a
request the data returned by this command is out of sync with the
actual data in the request status array.
A concrete example of this are access control hooks
(See Url_AccessUnInstall). When they are called the CGI
environment has not yet been (re)initialized, meaning that this
command will return the cookie data for the last request, and not of
the current one.
Name of the cookie
Time restriction. Required format is "%A, %d-%b-%Y %H:%M:%S GMT" If
it is not in GMT it has to acceptable to clock scan for
cookies, web server
