print -- Output a string


print (string arg)

Outputs arg. Returns TRUE on success, FALSE on failure.

Example 1. print() examples

print("Hello World");

print "print() also works without parentheses.";

print "This spans
multiple lines. The newlines will be 
output as well";

print "This spans\nmultiple lines. The newlines will be\noutput as well.";

print "escaping characters is done \"Like this\"."

//You can use variables inside of an print statement
$foo = "foobar";
$bar = "barbaz";

print "foo is $foo"; // foo is foobar

// Using single quotes will print the variable name, not the value
print 'foo is $foo'; // foo is $foo

// If you are not using any other characters, you can just print variables
print $foo;          // foobar

print <<<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!
