Look into the extract() function.  You could use it to turn the $_POST 
or $_GET arrays into local variables, whether you do it at the beginning 
of the script and make them global as you are currently doing or by 
doing it at the beginning of the functions that you use them, without 
globalizing anything.

For example... given the url http://localhost/foo.php?bar=banana

you'd have $_GET['bar']=="banana" instead of $bar=="banana";

at the beginning of the script you'd have extract($_GET); and $bar would 
exist with the value "banana"
