A Cookies object is designed to contain and maintain HTTP cookies, and should be used along with Zend_Http_Client in order to manage cookies across HTTP requests and responses.

The class contains an array of Zend\Http\Header\Cookie objects. Cookies can be added automatically from a request or manually. Then, the Cookies class can find and return the cookies needed for a specific HTTP request.

A special parameter can be passed to all methods of this class that return cookies: Cookies can be returned either in their native form (as Zend\Http\Header\Cookie objects) or as strings - the later is suitable for sending as the value of the "Cookie" header in an HTTP request. You can also choose, when returning more than one cookie, whether to get an array of strings (by passing Zend\Http\Client\Cookies::COOKIE_STRING_ARRAY) or one unified string for all cookies (by passing Zend\Http\Client\Cookies::COOKIE_STRING_CONCAT).
