Hi Denise,

I did find one tutorial here that might help with the receiving side of


To make cookies, in the examples of the Cookie module will probably help
the most:


>From the documentation, it sounds like Cookie.SimpleCookie is what you're
looking for:

>>> import Cookie
>>> mycookie = Cookie.SimpleCookie()
>>> mycookie['pop'] = 'tart'
>>> mycookie
<SimpleCookie: pop='tart'>
>>> print mycookie
Set-Cookie: pop=tart;

as the page at the very beginning of the Cookie documentation says that
Cookie.SmartCookie is too smart and trusting for its own good.

Best of wishes!
