Apr 16, 2009 @ 09:31:25

PHPBuilder.com has the latest in their series looking at beginner level PHP and some of the core concepts that go with it ("The ABC's of PHP"). This latest tutorial looks at string and text handling.

In the last part of this series we looked at what a variable was in general. Today we'll be covering strings and text. We'll look at the contents those variables would typically hold.

Topics include the differences between single and double quotes, appending to a string and special characters (like line feeds and tabs). Code snippets are provided for each to help you visualize what they mean.
