View Full Version : HTTP GET header to simulate a cookie

Sep 5, 2008, 01:11 AM
I'm trying to get a feed from google reader following this guide:

They tell me that I have to have a cookie with the following properties :
name SID
domain .google.com
path /
expires 1600000000

If you don't have a http client API that support cookies, you can just add header lines that simulate this cookie in all other requests.

But I dont know how to add a header to simulate this cookie

[request setURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"http://www.google.com/reader/atom/user/-/state/com.google/reading-list"]];
[request setTimeoutInterval:30.0];
[request setHTTPMethod:@"GET"];
[request addValue:(@"name=%@",SID) forHTTPHeaderField:@"Cookie"];

The above code wont work...
Can someone tell me what this guy means?
