“PHP is a hodgepodge morass”, part ∞

[ #31791 ]

Shaun Inman :

But what if you‘re of the OO-persuasion and use square brackets in your input name attributes to group the properties of your object? Something like this:

<label>Zip File: <input type="file" name="download[zip]" /></label>
<label>Screenshot: <input type="file" name="download[screenshot]" /></label>

Based on the behavior of the $_GET and $_POST superglobals one would assume something along the lines of:


But what have we learned about assumption? Suddenly, $_FILES is a tangled mess. The properties of your uploaded files become properties of your named object and the properties you were expecting become properties of the uploaded file properties! Zah?

Why am I not surprised?
