From memory, print() is a function while echo is a language construct.
The major difference is that you can use echo with a comma seperated
list of arguments, while print requires you to concatenate strings. For
echo "hello ", "world";
print "hello "."world";
Of these two the echo command is more efficient. The print statement
requires PHP to create a new string in memory and copy "hello " and
"world" into it, then display that string. The echo command does not
require the new string creation step - instead it sends "hello " to the
browser, then sends "world" to the browser without needing to stick them
together in memory first.
The difference in performance however is minimal to the point of being
I think that's the difference anyway :)
