That's not quite right. $HTTP_POST_VARS and $_POST are the same thing. $_POST
was added in 4.1.0 to make it more convenient to use. What register_globals
does is register variables sent from the client into globals, so that you can
use $foo instead of $_POST['foo'] (or $HTTP_POST_VARS['foo'] if you use an
older version).
