Below some code.

The array PM_method is setup as a HTML form that is fed to the next stage where $act = 1.

Note that gettype reports it as a string and echo can't print it because it is an array.

<?php

#phpinfo();

if ($act == 1){


echo "Print Vars <p>";

$TT = gettype($var);


while (list($var, $value) = each($HTTP_POST_VARS)) {

$TT = gettype($var);

#echo "TTT $TT XX $var YY $PM_method[2] bb <p>";
echo "Gettype sees \$$var as a $TT<p>";
echo "Echo sees \$$var as an array $PM_method<p>";

        
echo "POST $var = $value<br>\n";
		
    		} # end while


} # end if ($act == 1)




if ($act == 0 || empty($act)){

?>
