Read Web Contents via PHP using local Browser

I am not sure this is at all possible..  but I know that PHP can read the contents of a web page with the CURL commands, or the file_get_contents...

BUT, when reading such web page various cookies are stored. And when retrieved via PHP the cookies are lost.

How can I do this and maintain the state of the cookies stored on the browser?

Thanks.  The solves half of my issue on how to retrieve a cookie from the remote service call...

But, then; how can I inject the cookie into the request?  So that the web service I'm calling see's the cookie that was saved prior?

What have you tried?  Have you made a request with cURL containing the same parameters?  If not, please try that and see if cURL sends the cookie back to the browser.

What was wrong with my answer?  Did you try my suggestion?  Why did you give a marked-down grade without responding to my question and without any explanation?
