hash with a secret salt, for storing session information securely on the

I realized that there is something I am missing. Sometimes I may need to put
something into the session after I did $cgi->start_html. I can do it if the
cookie is only a session ID, with session data stored in mysql.

But how can I change the cookie AFTER I called $cgi->start_html?

If I can do that, I think that I am set to go.
