AG> I have to understand the new "register globals off" methods and it seems AG> like a good idea to learn that from the beginning ....but all the books and AG> beginners guides gives examples the old way.
give it 3 more weeks and 2nd edition of PHP Fast & Easy will be out...all register_global updated and everything. :) but that's 3 whole weeks. AG> eg if a simple PHP file for handling form input takes in the data using AG> $LastName can I simply use $_POST["LastName"]?? pretty much. If POST is the method. Substitute $_GET if GET is the method. Handling session variables is a little different than just using session_register() Also, when uploading files, the $_FILE assoc array behaves a wee bit differently. And there's always the use of $_SERVER[PHP_SELF] instead of just $PHP_SELF. It's all in the manual, but if you just start with understanding the $_POST and $_GET superglobals in relation to your forms, you've made a good first step. - Julie --> Julie Meloni --> [EMAIL PROTECTED] --> www.thickbook.com Find "Sams Teach Yourself MySQL in 24 Hours" at http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0672323494/thickbookcom-20 -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
