hello evolters,
i was just wondering how i can redirect in perl after I've
set a cookie because to set the cookie i us

print "Content-type: text/html\n";
print "Set-Cookie: information=$set_value; expires=$set_expires; path=\n\n";

and a few lines after i tried using

my $place = "http://localhost/" . $redir;
print "Location: $place\n\n";

which obviously just printed out to my screen

Location: http://localhost/whatever/redirection/

is their any other way of loading another page without this happening?
