Cookie::Baker - Cookie string generator / parser


use Cookie::Baker;

$headers.push_header('Set-Cookie' => bake-cookie($key, $val));

my $cookies_hashref = crush-cookie($headers.header('Cookie'));


Cookie::Baker provides simple cookie string generator and parser.


  • bake-cookie

    my $cookie = bake-cookie('foo','val'); my $cookie = bake-cookie( 'foo', 'val', path => "test", domain => '', expires => '+24h' );

Generates a cookie string for an HTTP response header. The first argument is the cookie's name and the second argument is a plain string or hash reference that can contain keys such as value, domain, expires, path, httponly, secure, max-age.

  • value

Cookie's value

  • domain

Cookie's domain.

  • expires

Cookie's expires date time. Several formats are supported

expires => time + 24 * 60 * 60 # epoch time
expires => 'Wed, 03-Nov-2010 20:54:16 GMT' 
expires => '+30s' # 30 seconds from now
expires => '+10m' # ten minutes from now
expires => '+1h'  # one hour from now 
expires => '-1d'  # yesterday (i.e. "ASAP!")
expires => '+3M'  # in three months
expires => '+10y' # in ten years time
expires => 'now'  #immediately
  • path

Cookie's path.

  • httponly

If true, sets HttpOnly flag. false by default.

  • secure

If true, sets secure flag. false by default.

  • crush-cookie

Parses cookie string and returns a hashref.

my %cookies_hashref = crush-cookie($headers.header('Cookie'));
my $cookie_value = %cookies_hashref<cookie_name>;
