Need to Set Pop-Up Cookie

I've got a pop-up on a client's index page but need to set a cookie so that it only shows once during the visit. As it is, any return to the front page triggers the pop-up, annoying the visitor. It's a (document).ready function and I'm not sure the best way to go about this.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Cayce

I checked the link but can't seem to get the code to work. I've converted the page to .php and put the script in what I thought were the right places, but not having any luck. Fact is, I'm pretty weak in this area and I need real explicit help.

The page I'm working with: http://www.caycecookbook.com/pop_ups/jqm_onDocReady/code.php

The updated code, attached:
<?php session_start();
  if( $_SESSION['visited'] ){
      //don't show the modal box
  } else {
      $_SESSION['visited'] = true;
     //show modal box;
  }
?>
