passing an array from html-forms to php

Hello everybody,
we can use php variable $_POST for passing varibles like user_name etc. But when there are a large number of variables, the manual says we should use arrays in html-forms. I have not been able to access these array elements from php sscripts. The manual is silent as to how should we refer to these arrays-elements of html-forms from php side.

Can anyone guide me in this ? Pllease give a small exmaple to the syntax of referring these array elementts from php.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Your form:
<form name="myFrm" action="theAction.php" method="post">
  F1: <input type="text" name=aF[]><br>
  F2: <input type="text" name=aF[]><br>
  F3: <input type="text" name=aF[]><br>
  F4: <input type="text" name=aF[]><br>
  F5: <input type="text" name=aF[]><br>
  F6: <input type="text" name=aF[]><br>
  F7: <input type="text" name=aF[]><br>
  F8: <input type="text" name=aF[]><br>
  F9: <input type="text" name=aF[]><br>
  F10: <input type="text" name=aF[]><br>
Your PHP:
  $formResult = $_POST['aF'];
  for ($aCntr = 0; $aCntr < count($formResult); $aCntr++) {
    echo $formResult[$aCntr]."<br>";
