If you want to make the script compatible both with register globals=off and work with old AND new PHP versions, use $HTTP_POST_VARS and $HTTP_GET_VARS. Manual says they are deprecated, but there is no reason to presume they are removed from PHP any time soon. And if that day comes it's a few minutes task to search and replace all sources to convert them to $_GET and $_POST. For commonly used $PHP_SELF I use this: if (isset($_SERVER)) $PHP_SELF = $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; $scriptname = basename($PHP_SELF); This way users don't have to select from two source versions, one > PHP 4.1.0 and one < 4.1.0. ------------------------- Pekka Saarinen http://photography-on-the.net ------------------------- -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
