HTTP Cookie Example using Python
After becoming frustrated trying to understand how to implement cookies in Python,
and finally making some progress, I decided to try and save others some of the
frustration I had experience by making an example available. Looking at it a couple

One tip for people googling for information on cookies is to also google the
related topic "python cgi session id".

It was not written by an expert on cookies, and is only intended for
educational purposes. It probably contains security holes, so it should not
be installed in an area of your web site where the world has access to it.
