What Jim means is here in the manual:

In a nutshell:

Always use quotes around a string literal array index. For example,
/$foo['bar']/ is correct, while /$foo[bar]/ is not.

The reason is that without the quotes, you are generating an undefined
constant (bar) rather than using a string index ('bar'). It works, but
could have side effects in the future, so it's bad form to do it.

As for general politeness, you seem to be unaware of recent history in
this (an associated) groups. The OP has often committed the ultimate
sine. Not posting slightly wild code (we've all been/are there!) He
doesn't seem to listen or learn too well. Many posters (including Jim)
have offered a lot of of extremely good (and detailed) advice which
seems to be rarely taken...

Yeah, Jim, please explain what u mean by "Per the manual, associative
arrays
using string indices should always use ' ' around them.  They work (as
mentioned in the manual) but are wrong". As long as I remember  I
could use
associative arrays in that way (ex. $_SESSION['Cust_Num']). There's
another
way to do that using string indices? Why do you say it's wrong? It's
obsolete?

I would like to make a call to all the members of this mailing list:
knowledge is a wonderful gift so, why we don't share it politely and
efficiency. Jim, I will take you as an example. You start saying "
Against
my better judgement, here I go again".


My humble thanks for your timely support.  :)
