ookies enable you to write text directly to a users computer*. This can be used to easily recognize if a user has been to your site before or used to prevent multiple entries in to forms. The example below will take any input you type in and write it to a cookie.

A hyperlink to the same page is created to demonstrate on subsequent visits (within 3 days) the user will see their input rather then the text input box. To see the cookie on your PC locate your cookie directory (typically located in C:\WINDOWS\Cookies) and find the one named www.codeave.txt. *The ability to write cookies to the PC can be restricted by the user by changing security options.    More detail...
