Maintaining state information?

Hello geniuses...

How do I maintain state information in Perl?  What I want to do specifically is set up password protection for a site, but I don't want to do it using the ".htaccess" method since 1) I don't have that much control over our client server and 2) I don't want a pop-up box for PW entry, I'd rather use HTML.

Cookies are ok, but I need a non-cookie answer too, if there is one...thanks...

..also, if anyone knows where I can find this info on the web somewhere, I'd be much obliged, although I'm going to leave the question open for all kinds of other reasons...

use the CGI.pm module for setting cookies ( see its docs)


Regarding maintaining STATE other than cookies ..

You could use a TEMP file for each user
