New Comment:

because $HTTP_SERVER_VARS is protable across server APIs
(although not every variable in it is set by every API)
while getenv() is specific to only some of them

remember that gentenv() is a generic environment access
function and as such OS-dependant (on some operating
systems you might even have no such environment at all)

Hi !

The combination of Win2K and IIS5 seams to prevent the nice function getenv to return 
values. Infos like 'SERVER_SOFTWARE' and so are correctly stored in $HTTP_SERVER_VARS, 
but why shoul I have 2 access the infos directly via an awfull code like  $x= 
$GLOBALS[]... if I got an getenv-function ...

regards stefan
