Sorry, but the bug system is not the appropriate forum for asking
support questions. Your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.
For a list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP,
please visit

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

the "variable variables" feature works on plain variable names only, there is no array resolving done

$$t is equal to $GLOBALS[$t] here
and    $GLOBALS["extractid[$i]"] 
is not $GLOBALS["extractid"][$i]
