For some time, my PB10 app has happily been using a getURL call to retrieve HTML from a site. Recently, a cookie is now required to access the same URL. After permitting the cookie to be set, I can access the page in a browser, but how to provide the cookie info when accessing from PB?
Here is an example:
ls_URL = "http://www.tsnhorse.com/cgi-bin/instant.cgi?type=inc&country=USA&track=SA&date=2006-03-26
getURL (ls_URL, this)
This used to work fine and return valid HTML to the data blob (i.e. as viewed in a browser), but now rather returns a page informing the necessity of registration, which simply places a cookie on the user computer. After the cookie is placed, browsers work fine, but not the PB app because, I presume, the cookie info needs to be passed. How do I append the Cookie header item to the ls_URL value, so that it is treated during the HTTP GET as a separate Request Header item, and not part of the main Request-line?
Example cookie info is: Cookie: EMREGfirstname.lastname@example.org;
Or, is there an alternate to PB 'getURL' for such detailed processing, perhaps by a PBNI, or external ActiveX?
