using php 4.3.1
i have form values that are being posted to a second page for processing, it is for a db insert so i need to escape some characters...
however it seems that php is automatically escaping the characters, is this correct is there some module that may be loaded that is doing this automatically?
so for example i'm submitting ...
field1>> text in field one includes "quote and \slash characters
if on the receiving page i write it to the page
text in field one includes \"quote and \\slash charaters
i'm perplexed, but not unhappy with this, with asp i had to pass the variables through functions to escape cerain characters, how is this happening here without doing so?
