echo testfunction($var1, $var2, $var3, $var4);

Or if you need to do something else with the value before echo()ing it:

$meat = testfunction($var1, $var2, $var3, $var4);
//Do something with $meat

I have form that a user would input information and that info is sent to
a function, but I need to be able to return a result of this function
and is where I am having a problem.
For example:

testfunction($var1, $var2, $var3, $var4); //the form fills these

echo $meat;

function testfunction($a, $b, $c, $d) {

The $meat of the function goes here;

Now I need to return the result of $meat;

return $meat;

This does not work. I'm new to funtions and obviously missing something,
but I haven't been able to find a good tutorial on this. The PHP manual
isn't much help.

Any help is appreciated.
