How to output string in php

How to output string in php



(PHP 4, PHP 5)

echoOutput one or more strings


void echo ( string $arg1 [, string $... ] )

Outputs all parameters.

echo is not actually a function (it is a language construct), so you are not required to use parentheses with it. echo (unlike some other language constructs) does not behave like a function, so it cannot always be used in the context of a function. Additionally, if you want to pass more than one parameter to echo, the parameters must not be enclosed within parentheses.

echo also has a shortcut syntax, where you can immediately follow the opening tag with an equals sign. Prior to PHP 5.4.0, this short syntax only works with the short_open_tag configuration setting enabled.

I have <?=$foo?> foo.



The parameter to output.


Return Values

No value is returned.


Example #1 echo examples

echo "Hello World";
echo “This spans
multiple lines. The newlines will be
output as well”;
echo “This spans\nmultiple lines. The newlines will be\noutput as well.”;
echo “Escaping characters is done \”Like this\”.”;
// You can use variables inside of an echo statement
$foo = “foobar”;
$bar = “barbaz”;
echo “foo is $foo”; // foo is foobar
// You can also use arrays
$baz = array(“value” => “foo”);
echo “this is {$baz[‘value’]} !”; // this is foo !
// Using single quotes will print the variable name, not the value
echo ‘foo is $foo’; // foo is $foo
// If you are not using any other characters, you can just echo variables
echo $foo;          // foobar
echo $foo,$bar;     // foobarbarbaz
// Some people prefer passing multiple parameters to echo over concatenation.
echo ‘This ‘, ‘string ‘, ‘was ‘, ‘made ‘, ‘with multiple parameters.’, chr(10);
echo ‘This ‘ . ‘string ‘ . ‘was ‘ . ‘made ‘ . ‘with concatenation.’ . “\n”;
echo <<<END
This uses the “here document” syntax to output
multiple lines with $variable interpolation. Note
that the here document terminator must appear on a
line with just a semicolon. no extra whitespace!
// Because echo does not behave like a function, the following code is invalid.
($some_var) ? echo ‘true’ : echo ‘false’;
// However, the following examples will work:
($some_var) ? print ‘true’ : print ‘false’; // print is also a construct, but
// it behaves like a function, so
// it may be used in this context.
echo $some_var ? ‘true’: ‘false’; // changing the statement around
