  1. server: create a go server, and create an api, this api is to display the cookies passed by the client
package main

import (

	_ "asap/docs"


func setupRouter() *gin.Engine {
	r := gin.Default()

	// Ping test
	r.GET("/ping", ping)

	return r

// @Summary 接口探活
// @Produce  json
// @Param lang query string false "en"
// @Success 200 {string} string "ok"
// @Router /ping [get]
func ping(c *gin.Context) {
	cookies := c.Request.Cookies()
	cookieInfo := ""
	for _, cookie := range cookies{
		cookieInfo += cookie.Name + ":" + cookie.Value + "\n"
	c.String(http.StatusOK, cookieInfo )


func main() {
	r := setupRouter()
	// Listen and Server in


$url = "";
$cookie = "; xmuuid=XMGUEST-FCF117BF-4D1B-272F-829D-25E19826D4F8;type=protobuf";
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIE, $cookie);
$output = curl_exec($ch);
var_dump($output) ;

What did you expect to see?

string(66) "xmuuid:XMGUEST-FCF117BF-4D1B-272F-829D-25E19826D4F8 type:protobuf "

What did you see instead?

string(0) ""


readCookies can't parse this formate

if splitIndex := strings.Index(line, ";"); splitIndex > 0 {
				part, line = line[:splitIndex], line[splitIndex+1:]
			} else {
				part, line = line, ""
