mb_parse_str --  Parse GET/POST/COOKIE data and set global variable


bool mb_parse_str ( string encoded_string [, array &result] )

mb_parse_str() parses GET/POST/COOKIE data and sets global variables. Since PHP does not provide raw POST/COOKIE data, it can only used for GET data for now. It preses URL encoded data, detects encoding, converts coding to internal encoding and set values to result array or global variables.

encoded_string: URL encoded data.

result: Array contains decoded and character encoding converted values.

Return Value: It returns TRUE for success or FALSE for failure.
