An HTML form sends input to this cgi program.  I would like to know how to print the value of
one or all of the cookie's values out of the object.  At present it outputs a blank string if cookies are enabled, but generates a server error indicating:

"uninitialized value in concatenation or string" at the line indicated.





#!/usr/bin/perl -wT
#
#

use strict;
use lib '/Volumes/mojo/toppweb/ttest/squid/squidperl';
use CGI qw( :standard);
use CGI::Cookie;

use constant SOURCE_CGI => "/tsquid/ctest2.html";

chomp (my $inval = param("cart_id") );
my $q= new CGI;

my $kookie = $q->cookie(-name => "tcooky",
                  -value => $inval,
                  -path  => "mt1.stanford.edu",
                   );

                              
if ( $inval )  {
#   print $q->redirect( SOURCE_CGI );
  print
        $q->header( -type => "text/html", -expires => "-1d" ),                  
        $q->start_html("Cookie Enabled"),
        $q->h1("Cookies Enabled [" . $q->cookie('tcooky') ."]"),           <--- error occurs here
       $q->p( "Your browser IS accepting cookies ",
       $q->a( { -href => SOURCE_CGI }, "Return" ),
       "."
       ),
       $q->end_html;



} else {
  print
        $q->header( -type => "text/html", -expires => "-1d" ),                   
        $q->start_html('Cookie Disabled'),
        $q->h1("Cookies Disabled " ),
       $q->p( "Your browser is not accepting cookies. ",
       $q->a( { -href => SOURCE_CGI }, "Return" ),
       "."
       ),
       $q->end_html;
}
exit (0);

you define a cookie but never read or write a cookie. The CGI module can handle the cookies, you don't need to also use CGI::Cookie. See if this helps you:
