It is very easy to send cookies to browser. These cookies are sent along with HTTP Header before to Content-type field. Assuming you want to set UserID and Password as cookies. Setting the cookies is done as follows −
#!/usr/bin/python print "Set-Cookie:UserID = XYZ;\r\n" print "Set-Cookie:Password = XYZ123;\r\n" print "Set-Cookie:Expires = Tuesday, 31-Dec-2007 23:12:40 GMT;\r\n" print "Set-Cookie:Domain = www.tutorialspoint.com;\r\n" print "Set-Cookie:Path = /perl;\n" print "Content-type:text/html\r\n\r\n" ...........Rest of the HTML Content....
From this example, you must have understood how to set cookies. We use Set-Cookie HTTP header to set cookies.
It is optional to set cookies attributes like Expires, Domain, and Path. It is notable that cookies are set before sending magic line "Content-type:text/html\r\n\r\n.
