Step 1 - PHP string concatenation


PHP string concatenation

String concatenation is the string manipulation method when you join 2 or more strings together. In PHP it is a quite easy task. You can use the concatenation operator which is the '.' (dot). You can join 2 or more strings into one as follows:

Code:
  1. <?php
  2. $str1 = 'This ';
  3. $str2 = 'is a ';
  4. $str3 = 'test string';
  5.  
  6. $full = $str1.$str2.$str3;
  7.  
  8. echo $full;
  9. ?>

Besides this you can use the operator to append a string to an existing one like this:

Code:
  1. <?php
  2. $str = 'This is the base string';
  3. $str .= ' and this was appended';
  4.  
  5. echo $str;
  6. ?>

If you concatenate a number with a string then the number will be converted into a string value so the output will be a string as follows:

Code:
  1. <?php
  2. $i = 100;
  3. $str = $i.' is a number';
  4.  
  5. echo $str;
  6. ?>
