Experts,

I need these two pieces of ASP converted from ASP to PHP; should be pretty simple, but I'm not very good with both languages.

<%
Dim String1
String1 = ""
For i = 1 to var
String1 = String1 & "../"
Next
%>
 
<%=String1%>

<?PHP
//<%
//Dim String1
//String1 = ""
$string1 = ''';

//For i = 1 to var
for (i=0; i<= $var; i++) {

    //String1 = String1 & "../"
    $string = $string . "../";

//Next
//%>
}

//<%=String1%>
echo $string1
?>

actually it would be like this
?PHP
//<%
//Dim String1
//String1 = ""
$string1 = "";
 
//For i = 1 to var
for (i=1; i<= $var; i++) {
 
    //String1 = String1 & "../"
    $string .= "../";
 
//Next
//%>
}
 
//<%=String1%>
echo $string1;
?>

Either is correct. I intentionally chose not to use .= to keep it closer to ASP and be less confusing.

yeah, but
this
//For i = 1 to var
for (i=0; i<= $var; i++) {
vs
//For i = 1 to var
for ($i=1;$ i<= $var; $i++) {

and this
echo $string1;
you forgot the ; at the end

<?PHP
//<%
//Dim String1
//String1 = ""
$string1 = "";
 
//For i = 1 to var
for ($i=1; $i<= $var; $i++) {
 
    //String1 = String1 & "../"
    $string .= "../";
 
//Next
//%>
}
 
//<%=String1%>
echo $string1;
?>

php code without any comments:
<?
$string1="";
for($i=1; $i<=$var; $i++)
{
$string1 = $string1."../";
} 
 
echo $string1;
?>
