Revigniter Sessions

Hold on - you guys are getting confused - or maybe you're just getting 
me confused :-) :-)


On the server side, Tom wants to use revIgniter session support - that 
should be just fine. revIgniter (or indeed LC Server) doesn't know, or 
care, if you are using a standard browser, a revBrowser inside an LC 
app, or just get/put URLs from an LC app.


On the client side, Tom (I think) wants to use an LC App - not sure 
whether he wants a revbroswer, or if he just wants to do "get URL" etc.

If it is the former (i.e. revBrowser) then I have no clue :-)

If it is "just" an LC app, then everything is fine - so long as the app 
handles cookies, and session cookies, just like a browser would. 
Therefore, when you retrieve a URL from the site, you should check the 
headers - using libURLLastRHeaders() - to see what cookies are being 
set; and when you make subsequent requests you need to set that 
cookie/value in the http headers you are sending.

see http://lists.runrev.com/pipermail/use-livecode/2008-July/112454.html 
for a brief description.

There ought to be a library to help, but I couldn't find one.

Alex.
