PHP Constants

What is a constant?

Constant is a name for a value and the name is used to access the value later in the script. If you have a value in your program that will not be changed during the script, then you can define it as constant. For example, the name of your site. Once defined, the value can’t be changed later or undefined. You can only change the constant where you it is defined.

PHP Data Type

PHP Variables

Concept of Variable

Sometimes in your program, you need to store data. During the execution of the program, computer processor stores those data in its memory cells before using those. If you use 100 different data in your program, then processor allocates 100 or more memory cells to store those data. Every memory cell has a number. In your program, you may need to use same data many times, therefore, to use a data for the next time in the program, you need to know the address of memory cell(s) where it is stored. But when you work with lots of data, it is not easy to remember those cell numbers. And, with the increase of data, it becomes harder or about impossible. To remember those cell numbers easily, programmers give each cell an easy name. This name is called variable. For example, if your age is 25 and it is stored in memory cell number 6927, is it not easy to remember the variable “age” instead of 6927 to refer the 25? You don’t need to know where 25 is stored in memory; variable is used to reference that location number.

Hi, I’m Neil Fin, an over-enthusiastic web professional. I love those beautiful websites and the technologies behind.
