[nycphp-talk] receiving params passed from one webpage to another

This is certainly a register_globals issue - but don't turn it on! Code

in a.php:

Please help by <a href="browform.php?brow=<?=$brow?>">letting us

Then in browform.php:

Thank you for helping <?=$_GET['brow']?>!

Or something similar.  Note that <?= will only work if short_tags is on
- as it is by default (I think).  But register_globals defaults to off
for a reason - it's bad, as are most global vars.
