If you mean "print to a printer", you don't. PHP is primarily designed to generate HTML, and you will be able to print the HTML output via your browser as normal.

If you mean, how do you display text, you can use the "print" or "echo" commands:

<?php
 
print "Some text";
 
echo "Some more text";
 
?>

Open in new window

There is a very good resource on the php.net web site - it is all the manual pages with user comments.  Have a look at this example: http://us3.php.net/manual/en/function.echo.php

Also, if you want to output formatted string (such as floating values with a number of decimal digits), you can use this useful function -- printf:

echo is used to print the output to the user like in asp response.write
