SOAP Without Netscape Cookie File

| | Comments (0)
If the SOAP example I gave doesn't authenticate properly, try providing your own cookie instead of reading from an existing cookie file.

use Digest::MD5 'md5_hex';
my $cookie = HTTP::Cookies->new;
$cookie->set_cookie(0, user => bakeUserCookie($uid, $pass), '/', $host);
sub bakeUserCookie {
    my($uid, $passwd) = @_;
    my $cookie = $uid . '::' . md5_hex($passwd);
    $cookie =~ s/(.)/sprintf("%%%02x", ord($1))/ge;
    $cookie =~ s/%/%25/g;
    return $cookie;
