HTTP_COOKIE variable not set

Hi there,

When I run the script below the 'HTTP_COOKIE' environment variable is
not set, i.e. "HTTP_COOKIE" does not appear in the scripts output:

#####################
import cgi
import os
import Cookie

print "Content-Type:text/html\n\n"

cookie = Cookie.SimpleCookie()
cookie["user"] = the_user

print os.environ
#####################

Hence when I run the following script the key is not found

#####################
import cgi
import os
import Cookie

c = Cookie.SimpleCookie()
if(os.environ.has_key('HTTP_COOKIE')):
	c.load(os.environ['HTTP_COOKIE'])
	print c["user"].value
else:
	print "no user"
#####################

How do I correctly create the cookie so I can retrieve in the second
script.

Thanks,
