Python replacement for PHP's $_COOKIE [ edit ]

Do you know a Python replacement for PHP's $_COOKIE ? Write it!


PHP original manual for $_COOKIE [ show | ]


$HTTP_COOKIE_VARS [deprecated]

$_COOKIE -- $HTTP_COOKIE_VARS [deprecated]HTTP Cookies


An associative array of variables passed to the current script via HTTP Cookies.

$HTTP_COOKIE_VARS contains the same initial information, but is not a superglobal. (Note that $HTTP_COOKIE_VARS and $_COOKIE are different variables and that PHP handles them as such)


Version Description
4.1.0 Introduced $_COOKIE that deprecated $HTTP_COOKIE_VARS.


Example #1 $_COOKIE example

echo 'Hello ' htmlspecialchars($_COOKIE["name"]) . '!';

Assuming the "name" cookie has been set earlier

The above example will output something similar to:

Hello Hannes!


Note: This is a 'superglobal', or automatic global, variable. This simply means that it is available in all scopes throughout a script. There is no need to do global $variable; to access it within functions or methods.
