Hi all,
I'm getting errors whenever I try to do anything with cookies. Here is
the offending code fragment, this is in app/helpers/news_helper.rb :

- - -

def last_survey_answered
  if cookies[:survey_answered]
    return cookies[:survey_answered]
  return 0

- - -

I have also tried simple cookie commands such as:
cookie[:test] = "Hi" . The error I'm getting is:

undefined local variable or method `cookies' for

Do I need to install a gem?? I tried upgrading rails to the latest
version (0.14.3) and the error is the same. Please help. Thanks
