my $cookies_dir = $Registry->

This is a subclass of HTTP::Cookies which loads Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.x and 6.x for Windows (MSIE) cookie files.
See the documentation for HTTP::Cookies.
The following methods are provided:
The constructor takes hash style parameters. In addition to the regular HTTP::Cookies parameters, HTTP::Cookies::Microsoft recognizes the following:
delayload: delay loading of cookie data until a request
is actually made. This results in faster
runtime unless you use most of the cookies
since only the domain's cookie data
is loaded on demand.
Please note that the code DOESN'T support saving to the MSIE cookie file format.
