[NBLUG/talk] Perl mod question - Cookies.pm

I am trying to program an automated perl script to interact with a remote 
website... ASP.NET with lots of javascript...messy stuff.  I first had to run 
a web scraping proxy server on the site, then converted the requests and 
responses to a perl script with a handy utility.

The problem comes in when using the cookie_jar object.  The Cookie.pm perl 
module only handles Cookie and Cookie2 format.  The site I am interfacing 
with hands out Cookie3 format.  I tried hacking Cookie.pm and manually 
setting my headers in my requests in the perl script with properly formatted 
cookies  but I can only get so far into the site with the mixture of 

Any ideas on ways to handle Cookie3 format with perl's Cookie.pm?
