      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.

      Sincerely,
      Fernando G.
