    I finally figured out how to clear the session created using:

    my $session = CGI::Session->new('driver:mysql',$query,{ DataSource =>
    User =>
    Password =>

    To do so, I am using:


    my $scriptname = $query->url(-path=>1);
    $scriptname =~ s/cgi-bin\/logout\.pl/login\.html/;
    print $query->redirect(-location=>"$scriptname",-status=302);
    #print $session->header(-location=>$scriptname);

    When I do this, the session info goes away, but nothing I do has had
    the effect of redirecting the user to the login page. How do I get
    this to redirect to the login page?
