I'm facing an issue with the `parse_str` function in PHP and I was hoping someone could shed some light on it. I'm trying to use `parse_str` to parse the query string from the URL and extract all the `$_GET` variables into separate variables. However, it seems that `parse_str` is not able to retrieve all the `$_GET` variables.
Here's an example of what I'm trying to achieve:
Let's say I have the following URL: `http://example.com/page.php?var1=value1&var2=value2&var3=value3`
I'm using `parse_str` like this: `parse_str($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'], $data);`
I expect `$data` to contain an array with all the `$_GET` variables and their values. However, when I print the contents of `$data`, I notice that some of the variables are missing.
I have checked that `$_SERVER['QUERY_STRING']` indeed contains the full query string and all the variables, so I'm not sure why `parse_str` is not able to retrieve all the variables.
Has anyone else encountered this issue before? Is there something I'm missing or doing wrong? I would appreciate any suggestions or insights on how to make `parse_str` work correctly.
Thank you in advance for your help!
