Submitted: 2002-10-22 05:46 UTC Modified: 2003-04-06 21:10 UTC

--- file a.php

<form action="a.php" method="POST" name="form">
          <input type="text" name="aaaa[]" value="1234567890">
		  <input type="submit">
</form>

<pre>
<?
var_dump($_POST);
?>
</pre>

-- end file a.php

While we send this form 
we will see :

array(1) {
  ["aaaa"]=>
  array(1) {
    [0]=>
    string(6) "567890"
  }
}

Variable $_POST["aaaa"][0] is "567890" 
and why not "1234567890"

Has this bug been fixed in version 4.3.0? I still have those 4 letters missing... I'm using a poll script by www.proxy2.de and when I try to post options to a poll it cuts the first 4 letters off. Please inform me by email.
