It really depends on what language you intend to use in your CGI programming.

An excellent resource on Perl cookies is on http://www.bewley.net/perl/cookie-test.html.
Also, check http://www.cookiecentral.com/

Have fun!

The easiest and best way to place cookies is to check out Matt's Cookie.Lib at http://www.worldwidemart.com/scripts/cookielib.shtml


It can also set session cookies.. just by not setting the expiration...

As far as the differance between session and normal.
Regular cookies expire opoun the date you set them to expire, Session cookies last until the browser is shut down or your script removes them..
