2. How much PHP Tags / Syntax? Echo and print?


<% %> [enabled asp_tags php.ini setting]

<?php ?> [This is standard Tags]

<? ?> [enabled short_open_tag php.ini setting]

Echo and print: In PHP there are two basic ways to get output: echo and print. echo and print are more or less the same. They are both used to output data to the screen. echo and print is not actually a function (it is a language construct), echo can take multiple parameters (although such usage is rare) while print can take one argument. echo is marginally faster than print.

	echo "This ", "string ", "was ", "made ", "with multiple parameters.";
	print "I'm about to learn PHP!";
