Getting a cookie over to mason_handler.fcgi

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but how can I get a cookie passed
over to mason_handler.fcgi? In trying to move from mod_perl to fastcgi,
the only remaining roadblock is to figure out how to get some cookies
set. With mod_perl, I was doing this in the INIT block:

my $query = new CGI(’’);
$c_cookie = $query->cookie(-name=“Whatever”,
-value => "$ARGS{‘Name’},
-expires => ‘+15y’,
-path => ‘/’ );
$query->header(-cookie=>$c_cookie);

But that doesn’t work with fastcgi, apparently. So, after doing some
digging, I realized there is a facility in mason_handler.fcgi for
setting cookies. I just don’t know how to get the information over
there.

Thanks,
Matt

RT uses a “add header” method. have a look in mason_handler.fcgi…

To an extent, this entire issue actually boils down to the fact
that mason_handler.fcgi prints out the Content-Type string and
does the cookie setting for each page. Which is not a bad thing
at all. I just can’t set cookies through other devices unless I’m
willing to have the Content-Type string displayed on the page,
which I’m not.

Even after taking a second look, it isn’t clear how I could pass
a cookie over to mason_handler.fcgi. Are there any other RT pages
that do this?

Of course, will the line:
print “Set-Cookie: $cookie\r\n” if ($cookie);

only add one cookie? Will this work if $cookie is a list? If not,
I could have a much bigger problem…

Does that make any sense?

Thanks,
Matt
