PHP 4.3.1 as mod.  dev box phpinfo() is here: http://pvt.mckenzies.net/phpinfo.php

I am writing a session class and have various methods to set and get session vars.  I have one method that extracts all session vars.  I also have one that registers $GLOBALS in the session.  I had never intended to do an extract of all the vars after registering the $GLOBALS, but during the course of testing it came up.  Doesn't work.

//page1.php
session_start();
$test = "Test stuff";
foreach($GLOBALS as $var => $val) {
            $_SESSION[$var] = $val;
}

//This works:
//page2.php
session_start();
$var = "test";
$$var = $_SESSION[$var];
echo $test;  //outputs:  Test stuff

//This also works:
//page1.php
session_start();
$test = "Test stuff";
$test2 = "more Test stuff";
$_SESSION['test'] = $test;
$_SESSION['test2'] = $test2;

//page2.php
session_start();
foreach($_SESSION as $var => $val) {
            $$var = $val;
            echo $var;  //outputs:  test test2
}
echo $test;  //outputs:  Test stuff
echo $test2;  //outputs:  more Test stuff

//This doesn't work:
//page2.php
session_start();
foreach($_SESSION as $var => $val) {
            $$var = $val;
            echo $var;  //outputs:  many keys but NEVER test
}
echo $test; //outputs: Notice: Undefined variable: test
print_r($_SESSION); //outputs:  many keys including [test] => 'Test stuff'

if(array_key_exists("test", $_SESSION)) {
            echo "TEST FOUND";  //outputs:  TEST FOUND
}

Thanks!
Shawn

The
//This doesn't work:
//page2.php at the bottom,
refers to using the //page1.php at the very top of the post.

Thanks!
