Like PHP echo, PHP print is a language construct, so you don't need to use parenthesis with the argument list. Print statement can be used with or without parentheses: print and print(). Unlike echo, it always returns 1.
The syntax of PHP print is given below:
int print(string $arg)
PHP print statement can be used to print the string, multi-line strings, escaping characters, variable, array, etc. Some important points that you must know about the echo statement are:
<?php print "Hello by PHP print "; print ("Hello by PHP print()"); ?>
<?php print "Hello by PHP print this is multi line text printed by PHP print statement "; ?>
<?php print "Hello escape \"sequence\" characters by PHP print"; ?>
<?php $msg="Hello print() in PHP"; print "Message is: $msg"; ?>
