HTTP::Cookies::Netscape - Access to Netscape cookies files
$cookie_jar = HTTP::Cookies::Netscape->new(
file => "c:/program files/netscape/users/ZombieCharity/cookies.txt",
my $browser = LWP::UserAgent->new;
$browser->cookie_jar( $cookie_jar );
This is a subclass of "HTTP::Cookies"
that reads (and optionally
writes) Netscape/Mozilla cookie files.
See the documentation for HTTP::Cookies.
Please note that the Netscape/Mozilla cookie file format can't store
all the information available in the Set-Cookie2 headers, so you will
probably lose some information if you save in this format.
At time of writing, this module seems to work fine with Mozilla
