Linux 2.4.3 i586, custom build.
I'd like to be able to retrieve the value of a cookie that I set.

The cookie is set on redirection to a no-access page which contains terms of use, upon agreeing
a second cookie is set.
Mod_Rewrite is supposed to check for the existance of this second cookie when it allows unrestricted
access to my site.
The access cookie is set on a second page, the first page has set the origional url request
in a cookie that should be accessable to use as a link target in the access granted page.

It would also be useful to me if I didn't have to use a regex expression to test for the access
cookie.  I think that an optimised output matched against the desired value would be faster
and less resource intensive.
This is unknown to me as it is in the construction of the pages and not the output its self.
"Maybe look for a way to allow modules to expose variables for logging? I.e. "%(mod_cookie:cookie)m""

HTTP_COOKIE:CookieName Should report the cookie's value.  There should also be ways of accessing
other cookie data such as expire time.  Such syntax is not readily aparant to me.
