NAME

cgiGetCookie - Return a cookie

CONTENTS

Description

SYNOPSYS


#include <cgi.h> 

s_cookie *cgiGetCookie (s_cgi *parms, const char *name);

DESCRIPTION

This routine returns a pointer to a s_cookie structure that contains all values for the cookie as referenced by name. The pointer must not be freed.

The s_cookie structure is declared as follows:

typedef struct cookie_s {
    char     *version,
             *name,
             *value,
             *path,
             *domain;
} s_cookie;

Memory allocated by this data structure is automatically freed by the final call to cgiFree(3).

To set a cookie in your program you’ll need to manually add additional header lines. Please take a look at cgitest.c. Basically, you’ll need to add the following code:

   cgiSetHeader ("Set-Cookie", "Version=1; name=value; Path=/");
   cgiHeader();

Please read the included file cookies.txt as well.

RETURN VALUE

On success a pointer to a s_cookie structure is returned. If no cookie was set or no cookie with a given name exists NULL is returned.
