Descriptionstring session_id ( [string id])
session_id() returns the session id for the current session.
If id is specified, it will replace the current session id. session_id() needs to be called before session_start() for that purpose. Depending on the session handler, not all characters are allowed within the session id. For example, the file session handler only allows characters in the range a-z, A-Z and 0-9!
The constant SID can also be used to retrieve the current name and session id as a string suitable for adding to URLs. Note that SID is only defined if the client didn't send the right cookie. See also Session handling.
