Right...
I'm using the document that starts :
ClientCookie
Note: this page describes the 0.9.x development version. See here for
the stable 0.4.x version.


There is no mention of LWPCookieJar *anywhere* in the docs.
In the debugging  section it talks about using the load and save
method and gives a specific example involving the straight CookieJar
class....... :

When you .save() to or .load()/.revert() from a file, single-session
cookies will expire unless you explicitly request otherwise with the
ignore_discard argument. This may be your problem if you find cookies
are going away after saving and loading.

import ClientCookie
cookies = ClientCookie.CookieJar()
opener = ClientCookie.build_opener(ClientCookie.HTTPCookieProcessor(cookies))
ClientCookie.install_opener(opener)
r = ClientCookie.urlopen("http://foobar.com/")
cookies.save("/some/file", ignore_discard=True, ignore_expires=True)



These are the docs that came with my download...............
LWPCookieJar - works fine.... but I'd never heard of it until you
mentioned it.
