18.22.5 Cookie Objects
Cookie instances have Python attributes roughly corresponding
to the standard cookie-attributes specified in the various cookie
standards. The correspondence is not one-to-one, because there are
complicated rules for assigning default values, because the
expires cookie-attributes contain equivalent
information, and because RFC 2109 cookies may be 'downgraded' by
cookielib from version 1 to version 0 (Netscape) cookies.
Assignment to these attributes should not be necessary other than in
rare circumstances in a CookiePolicy method. The class does
not enforce internal consistency, so you should know what you're
doing if you do that.
Integer or None. Netscape cookies have version 0.
RFC 2965 and RFC 2109 cookies have a
of 1. However, note that cookielib may 'downgrade' RFC 2109
cookies to Netscape cookies, in which case version is 0.
Cookie name (a string).
Cookie value (a string), or None.
String representing a port or a set of ports (eg. '80', or '80,8080'),
Cookie path (a string, eg.
True if cookie should only be returned over a secure connection.
Integer expiry date in seconds since epoch, or None. See
also the is_expired() method.
True if this is a session cookie.
String comment from the server explaining the function of this cookie,
URL linking to a comment from the server explaining the function of
this cookie, or None.
True if this cookie was received as an RFC 2109 cookie (ie. the cookie
arrived in a header, and the value of the
Version cookie-attribute in that header was 1). This attribute is
provided because cookielib may 'downgrade' RFC 2109 cookies
to Netscape cookies, in which case version is 0.
New in version 2.5.
True if a port or set of ports was explicitly specified by the server
(in the / header).
True if a domain was explicitly specified by the server.
True if the domain explicitly specified by the server began with a
Cookies may have additional non-standard cookie-attributes. These may
be accessed using the following methods:
Return true if cookie has the named cookie-attribute.
If cookie has the named cookie-attribute, return its value.
Otherwise, return default.
Set the value of the named cookie-attribute.
The Cookie class also defines the following method:
True if cookie has passed the time at which the server requested it
should expire. If now is given (in seconds since the epoch),
return whether the cookie has expired at the specified time.
