HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft(3)

HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft - Access to Microsoft cookies files

version 6.04

 use LWP;
 use HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft;
 use Win32::TieRegistry(Delimiter => "/");
 my $cookies_dir = $Registry->
      {"CUser/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/Shell Folders/Cookies"};
 $cookie_jar = HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft->new(
                   file     => "$cookies_dir\\index.dat",
                   'delayload' => 1,
 my $browser = LWP::UserAgent->new;
 $browser->cookie_jar( $cookie_jar );

This is a subclass of "HTTP::Cookies" which loads Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x and 6.x for Windows (MSIE) cookie files.
See the documentation for HTTP::Cookies.

The following methods are provided:
$cookie_jar = HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft->new;
The constructor takes hash style parameters. In addition to the regular HTTP::Cookies parameters, HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft recognizes the following:
  delayload:       delay loading of cookie data until a request
                   is actually made. This results in faster
                   runtime unless you use most of the cookies
                   since only the domain's cookie data
                   is loaded on demand.

Please note that the code DOESN'T support saving to the MSIE cookie file format.
