Any way to create php variables from a for loop

Recommended Posts

Hi

Does any one have any ideas how to create varaibles from a for loop that will be accessible on this page and can be posted to other pages

Heres what I have

for($i = 0; $i < 6; $i++)
{
$g = "gender".$i;
$d = "day".$i;
$m = "month".$i;
$y = "year".$i;
$e= "education".$i;

$gender."$i" = $_POST[$g];
$day."$i" = $_POST[$d];
$month."$i" = $_POST[$m];
$year."$i" = $_POST[$y];

$today = date("Y-m-d");
$t = explode("-", $today);

$person_age = calculate_age($day, $month, $year);
$education = $_POST[$e];

echo "Gender: " . $gender."$i" . " Day: " . $day."$i" . " Month: " . $month."$i" . " Year: " . $year."$i" . " Education: " . $education."$i" . '<br>';
}

I want to be able to create 6 sets of varaibles for gender, age, month, year, education and be able to access them on the page as separate variables.

many thanks,

Fergal.

I don't understand what you want, but maybe using an array would help? for example $year[$i], $day[$i].

you may also just want to check into the extract() function. it will pull all the contents of your $_POST variable into their own variables.
