get-cookie [ define ] <cookie value> = <cookie name>


Description:


get-cookie obtains the value of a cookie with the name given by <cookie name>. A cookie would be obtained from an incoming request from the client (such as web browser) or it would be set using set-cookie.

The value of cookie is stored in <cookie value>. If it does not exist, you can create it within the statement by using "define" clause. <cookie value> is allocated memory.
