    Unanswered: Help with session arrays

    Hi I am trying to use a session array to create a very simple shopping cart using php with odbc, I think my code is fine so far but I have limited experience and so any help would be great.

    my code so far is as follows

    <?php
    session_start();
    $Conn = odbc_connect ('06', 'root', '');
    $cprid = $_POST['sel_item'];
    $cproduct = $_POST['sel_item_product'];
    $cprice = $_POST['sel_item_price'];
    $ctop = $_POST['sel_item_top'];
    $cqty = $_POST['sel_item_qty'];

    $_SESSION['cart'][] = array("productId" => $cprid,
    "product" => $cproduct,
    "price" => $cprice,
    "ptopping" => $ctop,
    "qty" => $cqty);


    echo("<p>".$_SESSION['cart'][0]."</p>");

    ?>

    however all this returns is the value array

    Am I correct in assuming each time the values are posted to this page they will be adding into the array or am I missing something out. also how would I go about listing the items in the array? I am guessing that I am going be using a whie statement?

    any help anyone can give me would be great.
