php variable

A variable is a means of storing a value, such as text string “Hello World!” or the integer value 4. A variable can then be reused throughout your code, instead of having to type out the actual value over and over again. This is the tutorial to guide you how to create and use PHP variable.



Note: Variable names are case-sensitive, so use the exact same capitalization when using a variable. The variables $DCS_number and $dcs_number are different variables in PHP’s eyes.
