Description Author  

This class can log the usage of registered global variables.

It takes the values of all variables that would be assigned to global variables when register_globals is enables and initialize those global variables to objects of the class.

The class returns the original registered values but also logs the accesses to the global variables to help legacy applications find and fix old code that accesses registered global variables when register_globals option is on.

The register_globals option was removed from PHP 5.4 after several years of being discouraged.

However, there are always legacy applications that still rely on the register globals functionality.

This class not only can emulate the register globals option functionality, but it can also log the parts of the code of legacy applications that still rely on this feature, thus helping the developers to find and fix their code.
