I am a developer wanting to make the transition from asp to php3 and would like some info from anyone who can help since the documentation is a little vague in some areas.
What I need is the equivalent of:
my_var = request.form("posted_var")
Which would turn the variable "my_var" into whatever the posted variable "posted_var" was.
This is done using the POST method and not GET.
Any help would be appreciated.

Form entries are automatically placed into variables in the target php3 script. IOW, if you have the form element:
<form action=some.php3 method=post>
<input type=text name=name>
Than some.php3 would have the value entered in that element in the variable $name.
If you want the form elements in an array they will also be in the array $HTTP_POST_VARS (in this case $HTTP_POST_VARS[name]). Which, incidently, I convert to $hpv if I plan on using it, since $HTTP_POST_VARS can be a bit much to type
BTW, if you are interested, there is a program that converts ASP scripts to PHP called, you guessed it, asp2php. I don't have any links but you can do a search at www.phpbuilder.com for it and you should find it.
