Answer: Why can't I access a cookie I have set?

Q&A > CGI programming > Why can't I access a cookie I have set? contributed by simon.proctor

Referring to the CGI documentation, the following example is presented.
$cookie = $query->cookie(-name=>'sessionID', -value=>'xyzzy', -expires=>'+1h', -path=>'/cgi-bin/database', -domain=>'.capricorn.org', -secure=>1); print $query->header(-cookie=>$cookie);

I would recommend that you read the pod for CGIand use the code presented there. As a pointer, I would stick to the CGI module and not use CGI::Cookie. I say this as I've had no end of problems with CGI::Cookie in the past that disappeared once CGI was used instead.

Note that the code example assumes you have already created a CGI query object.

Hope that helps.

    Although your answer correctly states how to set a cookie, that was not the point I was trying to make. Several people asked why they couldn't read a cookie when they had just set it. ie, they wanted to read the cookie in the same invocation of their script.

    That was why I posted this question and answer combo.
