session_encode() just return the session dataset in a formatted form

session_start();

$_SESSION['login_ok'] = true;
$_SESSION['nome'] = 'sica';
$_SESSION['inteiro'] = 34;

echo session_encode();

this code will print

login_ok|b:1;nome|s:4:"sica";inteiro|i:34;

session_encode() can't handle pipes in your keys.

<?php
session_start
();
$_SESSION = ['foo|bar'=>'ba;z']; pathetic
dump
(session_encode()); // false because "foo|bar" contains a pipe
?>
