The miscellaneous routines for setting and fetching cookies have been replaced with a simple and versatile cookie managment system. ExSite now uses a tied hash called %cookie to hold all cookies it knows about in the current request.
To read the value of a cookie, simply look up its value in this hash. To set a new value, just set the hash value. ExSite takes care of issuing the appropriate cookie header so that the value will persist. To remove a cookie, delete it from the hash, as you would any other hash key.
The older cookie-handling routines are still in place, but are deprecated, and will be removed at some point in the future.
