Bug description:  We'd like support for output buffering and "here" syntax


For a long time I've wished that PHP supported the "here" string syntax,
i.e in Perl:

print <<EOF;
<font face="Arial" size="2">This is 
great for outputting HTML</font>

or better yet...

$string = <<EOS;
Hi, this is
a multi-line

The second example is a must considering that PHP does not support output
buffering, which is another feature that I believe is essential. It would
be lovely to flush an output buffer and then issue an HTTP header like a
cookie or a redirect. Let me just say that I love PHP, but this is one
aspect in which it falls short of (forgive me) Active Server Pages.
