Dear Experts,
I set cookie of "ticker" by setcookie() in php that is really easy as follows code
But the strange thing is that why it will echo out the correct result
of cookie ticker to  be 'testing" after press refresh button on browser
I mean it won't echo out the result in first time run the php file after
I clear up all cookie on browser for testing. it always only echo out
the result after first run php file and run it again at second time(like refresh the page)
Is it related to php version isssue or apache linux server?  As remember it won't happen in the past and  it is as easy as shown  at
http://php.net/setcookie

Please advise
Duncan

<?php
setcookie("ticker",'testing');
echo $_COOKIE['ticker']."=====<br/>";
