Im using get_browser and I only want to echo parts of what is returned.

So say for example I just want to echo platform and browser from what the array returns. How would I do that.

Thanks :)

get_browser returns an array if the second paramenter is true, of the remote user if the first parameter is null
print part of the array

<?php
$browser = get_browser(null, true);
print_r($browser['platform']);
print_r($browser['version']);
// its been a while echo $browser['platform']; may work
?>

array elements I know about, havent looked up if this is the full list
browser_name_regex
browser_name_pattern
parent
platform
browser
version
majorver
minorver
css
frames
tables
cookies
backgroundsounds
vbscript
javascript
javaapplets
activexcontrols
win16
wap
