Default variables not showing

 hi everybody

i am new in the forum

i am running php4 on a windows 2000 machine using iis5.

i have downloaded php4 and for the first chapters everything worked okey.

now i have this problem:

i write something in a text field and when i am calling a simple php script to view the contents of the variable nothing happens

i give you the code:

the html code


<form method="post" action="actor.php">

actor:<input name="actor" type="text">

<input type=submit value="click here to submit">


the php code


echo $actor;

why can't i see the contents of teh variable? should i change things in teh php.ini file?

thanks a lot
