I have 0 experience with python, very little with regex and I'm trying to figure out what this small snippet of python regex would give back from a http response header Set-Cookie entry:

REGEX_COOKIE = '([A-Z]+=[^;]+;)'
resp = urllib2.urlopen(req)
re.search(REGEX_COOKIE, resp.info()['Set-Cookie']).group(1)

Can one give a simple example of a Set-Cookie value and explain what this would match on + return?
