Dear Ruby Experts, I am somewhat confused about that CGI stuff. I have successfully written a Ruby script that sets a cookie. The script is called directly as CGI script, because I noticed that it seems to be impossible to call the CGI script using Apache's Server Sider Includes (SSI). Well. As workaround I send some form data to the Ruby CGI which creates a cookie from the data. The cookie exists and can easily be viewed with the Mozilla Cookie Manager. But I have some trouble with reading the cookie data. A second Ruby CGI script reads the cookie. It works well if called directly. It doesn't work if called with SSI, neither using "#include virtual=..." nor "#exec cgi=...". Any hints? Yours, Rene P.S.: What I wanted to do is: - user visits a webpage - user fills out a form - form data is sent to a Ruby script which creates some output - some output is embedded in the mentioned webpage during a reload And I tried to pass the some output to the webpage as cookie.
