rpike has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Do SSIs have access to the cookie from the client browser that requested the page? It "seems" to not have access. I have a SSI that makes a call to an exec (a perl CGI app). In that app, it attempts to grab a cookie from the client to determine a session to load. Each time a SSI was encountered on a page to attempt such a call a new session file was created on the server (i.e. using CGI::Session). This question shouldn't require any code as of yet. The only thing I'm wondering is if a perl script used in a SSI has access to cookies on the client side? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
