I don't think you can split the cookie-line on ";",  since the semicolon is allowed withing double-quotes, eg.:

Set-Cookie:  COOKIE1="a;b;c"; path=/xyz; Max-Age=100

Here's a good way to get cookies from a page and then resubimit the data to that page (or acess any other page using the cookies gotten).

<?php

//SOME DATA TO POST
$postData = array
(
'user' => $login,
'pass' => $pass
);

//FIRST POST
$post1 = http_post_fields('http://example.com', $postData);

//GET THE COOKIES STORED TO THE ARRAY $cookie
preg_match('/Set-Cookie: (.*)\b/', $post1, $cookie);
$cookie = (array) http_parse_cookie($cookie[1]);
$cookie = array( 'cookies' => $cookie["cookies"]);

//POST DATA NOW WITH THE COOKIE
$post2 = http_post_fields('http://example.com', $postData, array(), $cookie);
?>

alternative:
<?php

function cookie_parse( $header ) {
       
$cookies = array();
        foreach(
$header as $line ) {
                if(
preg_match( '/^Set-Cookie: /i', $line ) ) {
                       
$line = preg_replace( '/^Set-Cookie: /i', '', trim( $line ) );
                       
$csplit = explode( ';', $line );
                       
$cdata = array();
                        foreach(
$csplit as $data ) {
                               
$cinfo = explode( '=', $data );
                               
$cinfo[0] = trim( $cinfo[0] );
                                if(
$cinfo[0] == 'expires' ) $cinfo[1] = strtotime( $cinfo[1] );
                                if(
$cinfo[0] == 'secure' ) $cinfo[1] = "true";
                                if(
in_array( $cinfo[0], array( 'domain', 'expires', 'path', 'secure', 'comment' ) ) ) {
                                       
$cdata[trim( $cinfo[0] )] = $cinfo[1];
                                }
                                else {
                                       
$cdata['value']['key'] = $cinfo[0];
                                       
$cdata['value']['value'] = $cinfo[1];
                                }
                        }
                       
$cookies[] = $cdata;
                }
        }
        return
$cookies;
}

function
cookie_build( $data ) {
        if(
is_array( $data ) ) {
               
$cookie = '';
                foreach(
$data as $d ) {
                       
$cookie[] = $d['value']['key'].'='.$d['value']['value'];
                }
                if(
count( $cookie ) > 0 ) {
                        return
trim( implode( '; ', $cookie ) );
                }
        }

}

?>
