## Project description

This package patches the web application server Zope to improve its cookie handling.

Currently, it defines register_cookie_param( name, type ='string', pname =None) to define additional parameters recognized when cookies are generated. name is the parameter given to Zope’s setCookie method, pname is the corresponding parameter name in the generated Set-Cookie response header. If not specified, pname is derived from name by replacing _ by -. type specifies this parameter’s type. Currently defined values are 'string' (normal string, quoted when it contains whitespace, comma or semicolon), 'quoted-string' (a string unconditionally quoted), 'boolean' (boolean parameter, only the name and no value is generated), sequence (generates a quoted comma separated sequence).

ATTENTION RFC 6265 has drastically simplified the Set-Cookie syntax (over the now obsolete RFC 2965): it is no longer possible to quote ; by including it in a doubly quoted string. This means that ; can no longer be part of a cookie attribute value (unless RFC 2047 encoded).

Import of dm.zopepatches.cookies.httponly provides for httponly support. It registers both httponly as well as http_only. The former is the spelling consistent with other cookie parameters, the latter is the spelling used by Zope 2.12.
