getcookie(1) get a cookie from the DSBL server for batch testing




getcookie attempts to retrieve a cookie from the DSBL server and writes it to stdout. If the retrieved cookie value is put into the environment variable DSBL_COOKIE, all of the test programs in the DSBL test suite will use that cookie value rather than attempting to retrieve a cookie themselves, hence saving time and bandwidth when a batch of tests is to be run.
