Client-side HTTP cookie handling.
This project is no longer maintained. PyPI project mechanize provides a superset of this project’s functionality. Standard library module cookielib provides most of the same functionality.
ClientCookie is a Python module for handling HTTP cookies on the client side, useful for accessing web sites that require cookies to be set and then returned later. It also provides some other (optional) useful stuff: HTTP-EQUIV and Refresh handling, automatic adding of the Referer [sic] header, robots.txt observance and lazily-seek()able responses. These extras are implemented using an extension that makes it easier to add new functionality to urllib2 (now part of urllib2, as of Python 2.4). It has developed from a port of Gisle Aas’ Perl module HTTP::Cookies, from the libwww-perl library.
