Re: [PBML] I need help!!!
- Hello Lou,
Thank you for offering your help. I'm not sure if I'm going to be
able to explain what I'm trying to do, but I'm going to try.
What I want is put a cookie on whoever visits my website, so next
time they visit it they don't have to fill out the form that I have,
but I haven't been able to figure out how to set the cookie and
retrieve it using CGI. Where do I start? I've read several books,
but none of them tell you where to start, or how to retrieve that
cookie. Maybe I'm not reading throughly, but I just get very
frustrated not being able to do it. Thank you for your help.
