import_request_variables — Import GET/POST/Cookie variables into the global scope
Imports GET/POST/Cookie variables into the global scope. It is useful if you disabled register_globals, but would like to see some variables in the global scope.
This function has been DEPRECATED as of PHP 5.3.0 and REMOVED as of PHP 5.4.0.
typesparameter, you can specify which request variables to import. You can use 'G', 'P' and 'C' characters respectively for GET, POST and Cookie. These characters are not case sensitive, so you can also use any combination of 'g', 'p' and 'c'. POST includes the POST uploaded file information.
Note that the order of the letters matters, as when using "GP", the POST variables will overwrite GET variables with the same name. Any other letters than GPC are discarded.
Variable name prefix, prepended before all variable's name imported into the global scope. So if you have a GET value named "userid", and provide a prefix "pref_", then you'll get a global variable named $pref_userid.
prefixparameter is optional, you will get an
E_NOTICElevel error if you specify no prefix, or specify an empty string as a prefix. This is a possible security hazard. Notice level errors are not displayed using the default error reporting level.
TRUE on success or
FALSE on failure.
