how does php receive <form> parameters?

Hi,

I was just curious how a PHP script in a webpage
receives the parameters that I send to it in a
form tag. It's a stupid question I suppose, but
my impression is that, by comparison, in Perl
the parsing of parameter requires the programmer
to add a line in the .pl file. Not so in PHP?

Thanks,
-s

It's all in TFM:
http://www.php.net/manual/en/languag...s.external.php

Should tell you all you need to know how to use it, if you want to know
how PHP parses the submitted data you should off course use the source
:)

Its not stupid, just ignorant[1]. The answer is out there already -- read
it.
[1] "ignorant" is not in and of itself a bad thing.
