ClientCookie is a Python module for handling cookies on the client side,
useful for accessing web sites that require cookies to be set, and
returned later.  It is a port of Gisle Aas' Perl module HTTP::Cookies,
from the libwww-perl library.  Both RFC 2965 and Netscape cookies are

 import ClientCookie
 import urllib2
 request = urllib2.Request("")
 # note we're using the urlopen from ClientCookie, not urllib2
 result = ClientCookie.urlopen(request)
 # let's say this next request requires a cookie that was set in result
 request2 = urllib2.Request("")
 result2 = ClientCookie.urlopen(request2)

Python 1.5.2 or above is required, and urllib2 is recommended but not
required.  Note that the version of urllib2 from Python 2.0 is too old: if
you have Python 2.0, get the version from Python 2.1 (available from the
source distribution or CVS from, or use the
1.5.2-compatible version included with the ClientCookie distribution.
