cannot read cookie Can't Post

Hi all,

one of my app is setting a cookie. I use the following code to read the cookie. it runs fine when the code is hosted on a unix box. but when I host it on a windows machine, it fails reading the cookie. it is quite irritating for me now. any help is appreciated.


print "Content-type:text/html\n\n";

# Modules used
use CGI;
# Create an object of CGI
$query = new CGI;
# Request the cookie set by the application MYCOOKIE
$theCookie = $query->cookie('MYCOOKIE');

print "<b>$theCookie";

I think you should get the cookie before printing the http header:


use CGI;
$query = new CGI;
$theCookie = $query->cookie('MYCOOKIE');

print $query->header;
print "<b>$theCookie";
