While we all appreciate the many helpful posts to get rid of register_globals, maybe you're one of those who just loves it.  More likely, your boss says you just have to live with it because he thinks it's a great feature.

No problem, just call (below defined):

<?php register_globals(); ?>

anywhere, as often as you want.  Or update your scripts!

<?php
/**
* function to emulate the register_globals setting in PHP
* for all of those diehard fans of possibly harmful PHP settings :-)
* @author Ruquay K Calloway
* @param string $order order in which to register the globals, e.g. 'egpcs' for default
*/
function register_globals($order = 'egpcs')
{
   
// define a subroutine
   
if(!function_exists('register_global_array'))
    {
        function
register_global_array(array $superglobal)
        {
            foreach(
$superglobal as $varname => $value)
            {
                global $
$varname;
                $
$varname = $value;
            }
        }
    }
   
   
$order = explode("\r\n", trim(chunk_split($order, 1)));
    foreach(
$order as $k)
    {
        switch(
strtolower($k))
        {
            case
'e':    register_global_array($_ENV);        break;
            case
'g':    register_global_array($_GET);        break;
            case
'p':    register_global_array($_POST);        break;
            case
'c':    register_global_array($_COOKIE);    break;
            case
's':    register_global_array($_SERVER);    break;
        }
    }
}
?>
