Re: LAS Cookies

Hi Mike,

LAS uses cookies to keep track of the state of the LAS user interface. For instance,
one cookie is used to keep track of which dataset (in the left hand frame) is open. Another
cookie is used to send information from the browser to the server about which options from
the options window a user has selected.

LAS does *not* use persistent cookies -- that is, cookies are not saved on a user's disk. The cookie
is only valid while a user's browser is active.

Hello LAS users,

A question (maybe for the FAQ) from one of my users:

  Why does the LAS server need to put a  "cookie" on my
  machine to get it to run?
