Array with constants? vars?

Hello,

I'm a Delphi programmer, i really don't understand PHP so much...

Im trying to do the following thing, look the code below

I'd like to get something like

BEGIN&Name=John&Lastname=Mackay&Yearsold=60&END&

Its just a example where i will make my own code like a need...

I'm getting a T_DOUBLE_ARROW error at "$Array" line :(

Can someone help me? :D

Or a best way to do that...

Best Regards,
Carlos
<?
 
$PARAM_SEPARATOR = "&";
$VALUE_SEPARATOR = "=";
 
$SZ_NAME = $VALUE_SEPARATOR."John";
$SZ_LASTNAME = $VALUE_SEPARATOR."Mackay";
$SZ_YEARSOLD = $VALUE_SEPARATOR."60";
 
$Array = ('Name' => $SZ_NAME, 'Lastname' => $SZ_LASTNAME, 'Yearsold' => $SZ_YEARSOLD);
 
echo "BEGIN";
 
foreach ($Array as $Array)
{
echo "$PARAM_SEPARATOR.$Array";
}
 
echo $PARAM_SEPARATOR."END".$PARAM_SEPARATOR;
 
?>

You can't assign $Array to $Array in the foreach statement. I recommend doing this:
foreach ($Array as $field=>$val)
{
    echo "$PARAM_SEPARATOR.$val";
}

As a side note, if you need the field name too, then the associative part of the array is placed into $field in the above code.
