Long string session variable
I have a page with a form including a textarea. This form processes session variables to a PHP script for verification then depending upon further user input goes to a final PHP script to complete the task of updating a MySQL database and sending out an email confirmation. How do I get the potentially lengthy text from the textarea from the original input to the intermediate script to the final task? I'm reading some about serialize(), but not sure if that's the best alternative.
Thanks in advance -
