Subject [users@httpd] Apache cookies
Date Wed, 11 Dec 2002 22:04:26 GMT
Hello peeps,

Could someone please explain the point of cookies as implemented in 

Having used Cookies under Tomcat, I am used to them providing a means 
of identifying an individual session.  I understand that Apache, being 
an http daemon, is session-less, but if the Cookie is not stored on the 
browser, returns different information each time and provides no 
information which cannot be retrieved from other logs, what is the 
point of it?

Thanks in adcance,
