Hi, all. I'm writing an app for OS X; therefore I'd prefer to use only the default python install that comes with Tiger. For the moment, however, this means:

NaviOSX:~ adrianpetrescu$ python -V
Python 2.3.5
Therefore, I was not surprised to find out that cookielib did not exist here, since I knew that it was a 2.4+ feature.

However, I *was* shocked to find out that ClientCookie, which I'd thought was a Python 2.0+ feature, also cannot be found:

>>> import ClientCookie

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
ImportError: No module named ClientCookie
Why would Apple go out of their way to remove this functionality from their shipped version of Python? More importantly, considering I need to programatically access a website that uses cookies for
authentication, how can I do this in OSX's Python install? Do they provide some other library they'd prefer you to use?

I'm sure SOMEONE in the world has used cookies on Macs so I'm hoping there is a solution for this...

Thanks in advance!
QUOTE Thanks
