from the manual:
[print is a language construct [EMAIL PROTECTED]]
The print() function returns a boolean indicating the status of the call. If the
write was successful, print() returns 1. If not, it returns 0. This can be used to
detect when the client has closed the connection, and appropriate measures taken. The
builtin echo does not provide this same service.
can anyone else think of any other difference between
print and echo ?
i use print, becuase that's what i'm used to...
but i'd be curious to find out if there really
is any significant differences between the way
echo and print both work.....
