Subject Overwriting a cookie in request header
Date Tue, 17 Nov 2009 15:09:48 GMT
I have an Apache module in which I am trying to overwrite the value of a cookie. I have tried
different methods of the APR::Table without success.
Here are the approaches that I have tried:

[1] $r->headers_out->set("Set-Cookie", $cookie);

Here, $cookie has the name=value pair with the name of the cookie that needs to be overwritten.
The outcome is 2 cookies with the same name.

[2] $cookie = $r->headers_in->{Cookie};
<search-and-replace the cookie value in $cookie>

Does not do anything to the existing cookie ... does not even add a new cookie.

[3] $cookie = $r->headers_in->{Cookie};
@cookies = split(/;/,$cookie);
< add cookies one-by-one replacing the value of the cookie in question using  $r->headers_out->set("Set-Cookie",
$cookie); >

The web application does not work ... seems like clearing the header creates problems.

Any pointers would be really helpful.
