How to use "session_start"

P: n/a
Hi,
I'm a newbie. I was trying to figure out how to use the Session_start method? The reference books I'm reading say that a session STARTS when "session_start" is called. But ... in their sample code... I never see that explicitly called. Is it supposed to be called from the Global.asa file (still not sure what that is...)

Is "session_start" a server-side scripting thing? Or a client-side scripting thing?
I'd really appreciate a nice 101 on this topic of sessions.
Thanks
Mercy

Mercy,

The first time the page is opened, the Start event is raised for the
application and the session:

/*C#*/
void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e) {
// Application startup code goes here
}

void Session_Start(object sender, EventArgs e) {
Response.Write("Session is Starting...<br>");
Session.Timeout = 1;
}

//VB.Net
Sub Application_Start(Sender As Object, E As EventArgs)
' Application startup code goes here
End Sub

Sub Session_Start(Sender As Object, E As EventArgs)
Response.Write("Session is Starting...<br>")
Session.Timeout = 1
End Sub

//JScript
function Application_Start(sender:Object, E:EventArgs) : void {
// Application startup code goes here
}

function Session_Start(sender:Object, e:EventArgs) : void {
Response.Write("Session is Starting...<br>");
Session.Timeout = 1;
}

I hope this helps.
