I know that cookies are just text strings but I was hoping for a high
level function that can intelligently parse a string and cast it to a
dictionary, list, tuple, etc. It seems eval() might be applied here but
there are issues with using eval.
I have reevaluated my requirements and I don't really need to store this
info in cookies and will use session variables instead where it is much
easier to manipulate data.
I appreciate everyones help on this matter. Thank you.
