I'm using Perl to develop the CGI program on the Linux. I know that using IIS ASP, it has Session object which can save some global data. Is there any perl module or any other good method to use the global data just as the IIS Session object?

Thanks.

I know sometimes, I can use cookies. But, if 2 person share 1 PC. There's also some secret information need to be used as common variable. If one person closed his IE, another reopen it, he will get all the secret information. I just simplify this question:
How some online shopping realize that what are in the basket? Do they use database to track it? If the person close the IE before he click on the confirmation button, then all the data will be lefe in the database? How to clear this?

Thanks.

YOu can set a timeout on the cookies... and you can even make it so the cookies will delete themselves when the browser is closed...

http://home.netscape.com/newsref/std/cookie_spec.html is a GREAT explanation on how to use cookie sand set them to expire when you want them to... Take a look
