there are 2 global arrays $_GET and $_POST

if you looking for some field name, let's say 'submit' you may check which of $_GET['submit'] or $_POST['submit'] is defined

You mean from the client side or the server side?
from the server side it's trivial, just check the $_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] variable..
it should be either GET or POST

PHP up to version 4.3.0 the arrays name was $HTTP_SERVER_VARS ... the rest is the same.
