Print is used to display a string.

print(string $val)


val : The input data.

Return Values

Returns 1, always.

Print() is not actually a real function, it is a language construct like echo. There are some difference between the two, echo is marginally faster compare to print as echo does not return any value. Echo can accept multiple parameters without parentheses but print can accept only one parameter.
Example to display simple string with print()

    print 'One line simple string.<br />'; 
    print 'Two line simple 
    string example<br />'; 
    print 'Tomorrow I \'ll learn PHP global variables.<br />'; 
    print 'This is a bad command : del c:\\*.* <br />'; 

All the above print commands simply display the corresponding string, here we have used an additional html command <br /> at end of each print statement to generate a line break.
Output :

One line simple string.
Two line simple string example
Tomorrow I 'll learn PHP global variables.
This is a bad command : del c:\*.*
