Hello all Community !

My question is very simple:

What is the difference between $_SESSION['id'] and $_SESSION[id] ? Both works the same ! What is better ?

Does anyone know which is faster ?

Thanks all ;) !

The first one is the only correct way. Although the second (still) works, it is first parsed as a constant but not found, then parsed as a string (thus slower), but invalid code anyway. It may not work or cause errors in future versions.
