POST data being truncated at " [message #180140] Sat, 12 January 2013 11:44 Go to next message

Script 1: I collect data, including a textarea - submitted via AJAX
Script 2: I retrieve the data from the POST var and collate the
data and create a human readable report which is put into a
hidden field - submitted via AJAX
Script 3: I retrieve the data from the POST var write the data to
disk

The data collected in form 1 has an embeded quote: "ok" which is
passed via the POST array to form 2 without error.

When the report (which contains the textarea containing the
quote) passes from Script 2 to Script 3 the report is truncated
just before the quote.

Do I need to encode the report befoe putting it into a hidden
form field ?
or, anyone have any suggestions on how to debug this ?

yes.
there are a couple of commands to so this - I think htmlspecialchars
will cover the case.

Ineptocracy

(in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to
lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the
members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are
rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a
diminishing number of producers.

Yes, you do. But why are you passing it in a hidden field? Passing via
the session is safer, more efficient and generally a better idea.

I can't think of one good reason. I just got in the habit of
using the session for long term storage and POST for script to
script communication.

will re-think that.
Thanks

What is long term? For me long term data is in the database.

The session is good for data between requests, and it is secure i.e. the client can
not manipulate it, and it is local to the server.

/Str.

For me "long-term" was for the user session, from login to logout.
However, I have seen the light. I recoded using $_SESSION and
all is well.

use "ok"
or use 'ok'
double quotes mark the beginning and end of a string.
