Hi, guys
My Cookie is
Cookies[:test] => {:value => "<<<joe>>>",
                   :expires =>,
                   :path => "/"}
But when i open this cookie i found
value has been encoded like: %3C%3C%3Cjoe%3E%3E%3E.
I need not encode value.
How to solve this problem

different delimiters like --joe--, it would probably not get
