NAME

HTTP::Cookies::Mozilla - Cookie storage and management for Mozilla

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



        use HTTP::Cookies::Mozilla;

        $cookie_jar = HTTP::Cookies::Mozilla->new;

        # otherwise same as HTTP::Cookies



DESCRIPTION

This package overrides the load() and save() methods of HTTP::Cookies so it can work with Mozilla cookie files.

This module should be able to work with all Mozilla derived browsers (FireBird, Camino, et alia).

Note that as of FireFox, version 3, the cookie file format changed from plain text files to SQLite databases, so you will need to have either DBI/DBD::SQLite, or the <B>sqlite3B> executable somewhere in the path. Neither one has been put as explicit dependency, anyway, so you’ll get an exception if you try to use this module with a new style file but without having any of them:



   neither DBI nor pipe to sqlite3 worked (%s), install either one



If your command-line <B>sqlite3B> is not in the $ENV{PATH}, you can set $HTTP::Cookies::Mozilla::SQLITE to point to the actual program to be used, e.g.:



   use HTTP::Cookies::Mozilla;
   $HTTP::Cookies::Mozilla::SQLITE = /path/to/sqlite3;



Usage of the external program is supported under perl 5.8 onwards only, because previous perl versions do not support open in perlfunc with more than three arguments, which are safer. If you are still sticking to perl 5.6, you’ll have to install DBI/DBD::SQLite to make FireFox 3 cookies work.

See HTTP::Cookies.

SOURCE AVAILABILITY

This source is part of a SourceForge project which always has the latest sources in CVS, as well as all of the previous releases.

If, for some reason, I disappear from the world, one of the other members of the project can shepherd this module appropriately.
