php header() help

bob
I use the following code to redirect the browser on an error,
header("locatio n:error.php");
exit;

Is it possible to pass POST variables on as if a form was submitted, using
header()?

Thanks for your help,

Ben.

I suppose, if you wanted to turn them into GET vars.
You could do something like this...

<?
$url = "error.php? ";
while(list($key , $value) = each($HTTP_POST _VARS))
$url .= $key . "=" . $value . "&";
header("Locatio n: $url");
?>

Use the status code 307.

header("HTTP/1.0 307 Temporary Redirect");
header("Locatio n: error.php");

Regarding this well-known quote, often attributed to bob's famous "Fri, 5

You could GET, I imagine, by using something like--

Location: error.php?error =404

--but I imagine POSTing is out of the question...

Or, are you asking if POSTed variables, POSTed to a page that errors out,
can be preserved? That, I'm not sure... I'll have to check on that...
there'd be some interesting processing ideas there, I imagine.

You can process POST data normally in the document where you've placed
header() function. However, you can't send feedback to browser. If you
need so you should pass GET data to the redirected page:

$name=trim($_PO ST['name']);
$result=insert_ name_into_datab ase($name);
header('Locatio n: http://www.site.com/error.php?resul t='.urlencode($ result));
exit;

PEAR are your friend in this case :)

http://pear.php.net/package/HTTP_Request

Otherwise you can find a class to do HTTP Post requests at:
