Right method to begin server side validation for file upload

What is the right way to begin validation for data sent by a multipart/form form. I'll be receiving a file and 1 text identifier from a hidden field.

What's the best way to do it when it come to multipart/form data? How do u pros / experienced guys do it?

Thanks,
Norman

You can use the $_FILES array to access the uploaded file. See this page for more information and sample code: »www.php.net/manual/en/fe ··· thod.php

PHP manages all the plumbing / decoding for you. You don't have to deal with it.

In the end the $_FILES thingy did the job. Thanks, both of you.
