i was using the Cookie module before to handle all of my login stuff but i was getting warnings in my error log not to use it so i want to switch to use cookielib ...but i am very confused on how to use it. i am usually very good at figuring stuff out....but i don't really know that much about cookies and with using PHP before i came over to python...cookies and sessions, were pretty freaking easy. and http://www.python.org/doc/current/li...cookielib.html isn't really helping me at all.
so what's the best way to be up to date and use python as my main server-side language... for my logins too.
i hope all of this made sense, thanks guys

i guess what i meant to say in so many words was:
what do you use (w/ python 2.4) to handle cookies/sessions for your webapps? that doesn't use a deprecated module such as Cookie...

I don't really know how I missed this thread twice . Sorry for that!
Anyway, I would definitely suggest using cookielib over Cookies, which if you ask me is a terrible module! It's annoyed me so much that I even wrote my own
I haven't used the cookielib module yet but it does look to have become more complex, although it does offer more control & better features now .
You mention "login" in your first post. Are we talking about CGI here or are you using it for something else? I guess: what do you want to do exactly?
Hope this helps,

thanks for replying netytan!
i just have a basic login script that i wrote that sets a cookie so the other pages they travel to also know that they're logged in, like a session. and then kill the cookie on logout.
i wrote a class before (based heavily on someone elses) that used Cookie, but i can't find an example on how to actually use cookielib...and i really don't know that much about cookies, as i said before i used to just let php handle them for me, but now i am pretty into python and i am getting warnings in my error log like i said above (that i shouldn't use Cookie anymore), and i don't want to make it too easy for anyone to break in if there is a problem with the Cookie module.
and yeah this is just cgi, i am not using zope or whatever else is out there.
i hope this clears it up
thanks for your help

Hey Jack, this is just to let you know I haven't forgotten about you. I am looking for information on using cookielib with CGI but I haven't turned anything up as of yet. Right now it looks more like the module is for use with remote sites rather than on a server.
If I don't find anything soon I'll get in touch with the Python guys and see if they can gi'me a hit.
