Problem reading HTTP_COOKIE

Hi;

I'm trying to get cookies to work and I've traced my problem down to this reduced script:



#! /usr/bin/python



import string

import os

import datetime, Cookie, random

import time

import os



def parse_cookie():

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



  print os.environ.get('HTTP_COOKIE')

  print '<html><body>'

  print '</body></html>'



if __name__ == "__main__":

  parse_cookie()



It prints "None". However, when I look in my browser's cookie jar, there
 is a cookie "www.my_site.com" where my_site is the site from which I am
 surfing the above script. What gives?

TIA,

Jack
