       WebCommon::setCookie - Create a cookie header


       Pair<String,  String>  setCookie(  String key, String value, Maybe<Time>  expires=nothing,
       Maybe<String>  path=nothing, Maybe<String>  domain=nothing, Bool secure=false )


       key The name of the cookie

       value The value of the cookie

       expires The time that the cookie expires, which must be in GMT, or nothing if  the  cookie
       is a "session cookie" that expires when the web browser is closed (the default).

       path  The URL path to which the cookie will be returned. The default is nothing which sets
       it to the URL path of the current document. The URL path must begin with a '/'  if  it  is
       explicitly set.

       domain  The  domain  that  the  cookies  will be sent to. The default of nothing gives the
       current hostname.

       secure If true (the default is false) this cookie will only be sent  back  to  the  server
       over  HTTPS  connections.  Use  this  if  the cookie contains or can be used to access any
       sensitive information unless you do not have HTTPS available.


       Creates a cookie header that can be passed to HTMLDocument.addHTTPHeader (3kaya) or  added
       to the headers list for functions such as Webapp.displayPage_1 (3kaya)
        Remember that cookies are not available in the page that sets them, since the web browser
       has not yet received them to send back at that point.

    expires = gmTime(time()+3600); // one hour later
    cookie = setCookie("session",newSession(),just(expires));

       The             original             Netscape             cookie             specification
       ⟨⟩  has more detail on the use of these

       The functioning of the domain part is sometimes problematic. For example, there is no  way
       to   set   a   cookie   that   should   be  returned  to  but  not  to
