Definitely.  You also need to read the man pages, but I've saved you the

Good - you could also $packed_cookie->bake($r);

jar() returns undef if the browser sent no Cookie header - hence "can't 
call get method on undefined".
It's also tied to a hash - $$jar{ISMH_SESSION_ID}

$cookie is an object, which supports the "" overload, but I struggled to 
use that.  The bit you're missing goes after that:

$ismh_session_id = $cookie->value();

Freeze and Thaw are only needed if the cookie value is a data structure 
like a hash, not needed in this case.
