echo — Sends string data to stdout.


void echo(data[, . . .]);
mixed data: Data to be sent to stdout
mixed . . . (optional): Additional arguments




echo() is a language construct (as opposed to a function) that takes one or more arguments, converts them to a string, and sends them to stdout. Multiple arguments are separated with commas.


echo() is slightly faster than print() .


Multiple arguments cannot be placed in brackets as with normal function calls. If this is done, a parse error occurs.
