    How to print Option List from HTML in php?

    Hi I am new to php, I am working on my PHP assignment.
    Here is how it works,

    I have a html page contains 2 selection box, first one with course list, there are 2 buttons, add and remove, if I click add, the course name will be added to the second box, it has been done by JavaScript. Now I will write another php page to process the information in the second box containing added course information. I tried to use the following code in php page to bring up what's options in the second box, but the result comes out only with selected options:

    submit.php to process main.php added options in second box
    PHP Code:
    <?php
        $rightOptions 
    $_GET['right'];
        for(
    $i=0$i count($leftOptions); $i++)
           {
               echo(
    $leftOptions[$i] . " ");
           }
    ?>
    main.php contains 2 select boxes and 3 buttons
    PHP Code:

    <?php
        session_start
    ();
    ?>

    there is a way to do it, I am not sure it's appropriate way to do though, first I will use JavaScript to load the select option form and iterate all options and save all options into session, then I will pull the session out in next PHP page. is this right way to use PHP?
