(OP)

Hi,  I am trying to set a cookie using the line:

$cookie1 = cookie(-NAME => 'cookie1', -VALUE => "$cookietext", -EXPIRES => ', -PATH => "$path", -DOMAIN => "$domain");

if I print out the resulting line ($cookie):

print "Set-cookie: $cookie1<br>\n";

I get this:

Set-cookie: cookie1=102400102211EDT2121582190; domain=hellacool.co.uk; path=/projects/test/

but when I revisit the page and print out the HTTP_COOKIE environment variable:

print "Cookie: $ENV{'HTTP_COOKIE'}<br>\n";

I get nothing.  I do have cookies turned on in my browser.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks
