Variables

In PHP as in most computer programming languages, data can be stored in named areas of memory called variables. Variables can contain numbers, text, even binary data, as well as arrays (lists). They're also used to store references to files and database query results.

Arrays are special, so I'll go into those separately, but for the most part using variables is simple. All variable names begin with a $ and are followed by one or more letters. You can use numbers, too, and underscores ( _ ), but not spaces. Variable names are case sensitive - beware! $FOO is not the same as $foo.

  $foo = 3;
$myline = "Hello world";


Unlike some other languages, you don't have to declare your variables before you use them, though for security reasons, it's recommended that you declare some of them (for example, session variables). I'll cover this in greater detail later.
