Definition : In programming, a variable is a value that can change, depending on conditions or on information passed to the program. Typically, a program consists of instruction s that tell the computer what to do and data that the program uses when it is running. The data consists of constants or fixed values that never change and variable values (which are usually initialized to “0” or some default value because the actual values will be supplied by a program’s user). Usually, both constants and variables are defined as certain data type s. Each data type prescribes and limits the form of the data. Examples of data types include: an integer expressed as a decimal number, or a string of text characters, usually limited in length.


There are :

Integer      (123456789 )   Exm: $var = 15;

String        (Text , should be written between double quot “my text “)     $txt = ” Hello World ” ;

Boolean    (True or False )     $conditon = true;

Note: PHP is loosely typed language, That means you don’t have to declare which type of variable before you use it, like in other programming languages such as Java or C++.

Example :


$myname  = “Akram”;

$age = 26;

echo “my name is ”   .    $myname   .     ” Age  ” .    $age;


Notice : for concatenation use dot .



Function is block of code that perform certain actions whenever we call it.

to define a function this is the syntax :

function functionName(   ) {
    code to be executed;
