(0)Python replacement for PHP's $_SESSION [ edit ]
$_SESSION -- $HTTP_SESSION_VARS [deprecated] — Session variables
An associative array containing session variables available to the current script. See the Session functions documentation for more information on how this is used.
$HTTP_SESSION_VARS contains the same initial information, but is not a superglobal. (Note that $HTTP_SESSION_VARS and $_SESSION are different variables and that PHP handles them as such)
