Description:

That is, if I set a cookie for https://www.foo.bar, can I then access the same cookie at http://www.foo.bar?

Yes, you can. One of the cookie attributes is "secure", which ensures that it can only be sent over a secure connection such as SSL. Leave off that attribute and use the same domain and you'll have no problem.

    [stevieb]: it is exceptionally difficult I'm finding to debug a dist that is x-platform, where on each platform you're wrapping a different binary. Trying to co-ordinate a successful test run where tests are extensive is a nightmare, especially when the dist...
    [stevieb]: ...you're testing is a test system itself. 10+ documented issues fixed, another half dozen found while fixing the original ones. I'm getting there...
    [stevieb]: Then throw in changes to Windows that throws everything you trusted right out the window.
    [shmem]: that's why it is called "Windows"
    [stevieb]: shmem thanks for the 'insight' :P
    [shmem]: good thing that Sun already took "OpenWindows", otherwise I'd not stop to shudder imagining an "OpenWindows" from MS
    [shmem]: more garbage in, more garbage out that would be
    [stevieb]: I found that win10 broke a C# library I was using for one project while enhancing tests for a Perl dist, which breaks other Perl dists, and I'm about to throw my hands up on berrybrew. win2k12 broke one thing, win10 breaks something...
    [stevieb]: ...unrelated which requires replacing a lot of code and a whole lib. I'm about to go nix only ffs
    [shmem]: stevieb: what you're doing sounds afwully complex. Too much for me this evening to provide brighter insight ;-)
