NAME ^

Parse::Flash::Cookie - A flash cookie parser.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Parse::Flash::Cookie;
  my @content = Parse::Flash::Cookie::to_text("settings.sol");
  print join("\n", @content);

  my $xml = Parse::Flash::Cookie::to_xml("settings.sol");
  print $xml;

DESCRIPTION ^

Local Shared Object (LSO), sometimes known as flash cookies, is a cookie-like data entity used by Adobe Flash Player. LSOs are stored as files on the local file system with the .sol extension. This module reads a Local Shared Object file and return content as a list.

FUNCTIONS ^

to_text

Parses file and return contents as a textual list.

to_xml

Parses file and return contents as a scalar containing XML representing the file's content.

SOL DATA FORMAT ^

The SOL files use a binary encoding that is little-endian regardless of platform architecture. This means the SOL files are platform independent, but they have to be interpreted differently on little-endian and big-endian platforms. See perlport for more.

It consists of a header and any number of elements. Both header and the elements have variable lengths.

Header

The header has the following structure:

Element

Each element has the following structure:
