Yes it is quicker for me to say "RTFM <reference>", although I wonder if it isn't
perceived as slightly rude
when I use the acronym in such a context...
Preferred approach is to use: "$HTTP_COOKIE_VARS['username']" rather than "$username".
RTFM security issues in http://www.php.net/manual/en/security.registerglobals.php
which gives a good reason NOT
to do what I suggested earlier (!?) and shows code illustrating/contrasting the two
The annotated manual is (perhaps surprisingly for open source) v.good and easily
handled. Chucking "globals" at
the built-in search facility will also render a wealth of further reading - including
globals in 'sessions'.
