I need to store a BIG size information on a cookie (more than 30Kbytes!)
I know the limit size is 4K, so I need to decompose it into pieces of 4K

sample of a NOT WORKING script for large size cokies !

function save_cookie() {
      var Objhtml = document.getElementsByTagName('HTML');
      source=Objhtml[0].innerHTML;// source  size = 40Kbytes !
                     alert(source);
      writeCookie('source',source); // this does not work since size >4Kb
      
}
function load_cookie() {
      source=readCookie('source');
                     document.getElementsByTagName('HTML').innerHTML=source;
      alert(source); // this is NULL !
      
}

I need a script to write BIG cookies (crunched into 4Kbytes): ANY SOURCE for that

Perhaps it is time for a rethink - why not save to a Session or Application object? Or a database, for that matter. AJAX makes any of those options almost trivial.

You have options

1. DO Session Management at Server

2. Split the cookie data in multiple cookies. You can save upto 20 cookies , each 4KB
