I had a simple script that is useless after I installed
php-4.2.2. Before I was using 4.1.0 and it worked fine.

It seems that in the php-4.2.2 it doesn't, for some odd reason, understand the posted $submit variable in the if-statement.

Any ideas?

-- SCRIPT STARTS --

<?php

if($submit)
{
  echo $tellme;
} else {

?>
<h1>Tell me!</h1>

<form method="post" action="this-script.php">
<textarea name="tellme"></textarea>
<input type="Submit" name="submit" value="Tell it!">
</form>

In PHP 4.2.0, the 'register_globals' setting default changed to
be off. See http://www.php.net/release_4_2_0.php for more info.
We are sorry about the inconvenience, but this change was a necessary
part of our efforts to make PHP scripting more secure and portable.
