pass javascript arrays in php POST method

Is there some smart way I can pass arrays in POST variables without exceeding some kind of POST limit? Let's say Im going to pass around 100 names from one page to another using javascript, I've heard that serialize works in php but im not sure why this would be better then just to use some kind of separator like this:


and then use explode($_POST['name'],";").

also is there a way I can use associative array it would be even better.

any help will be appreciated!

Heya, Gozil.

Check out PHP's complex form variables (PHP: Variables From External Sources - Manual).

The only thing I noticed as a solution was that I looped through all the POST variables however this will create a lot of variables to pass on with ajax, for example a person can post 20 names, 100 names or even 1000 names if he would like too.
Im not sure if this will slow down the call or if its even possible, do you know if theres some limits to how many variables you can post in php 5?

I can only think of 2 limits the one beeing a memory limit (of which I do not know anything but its existance) and the other the POST size (KB) limit, which I believe is a server setting.
