Given the leading spaces you showed in $var2 and $var3 the solution from aarontomosky is correct.  You can learn more about how PHP handles strings here.

Just to elaborate on aarontomosky's answer (please don't accept mine, as their answer is exactly what you requested).

However, say for example you didn't have the leading spaces in the variable contents you could do...

$var4 = $var1 . ' ' . $var2 . ' ' . $var3;

Open in new window


the period . is used to concatenate (join) strings together.

Also, presuming there are no leading spaces in the variable contents you could do the following:

$var4 = "$var1 $var2 $var3";

Open in new window


If you aren't aware the difference between using single quotes and double quotes is as follows:

- Single quotes are treated as text and the contents are not parsed/processed by PHP.
- Double quotes are parsed/processed by PHP and variables within them are treated correctly.

For example...

$var1 = 'test';

echo 'This is a $var1';

// This would echo the string, This is a $var1

echo "This is a $var1";

// This would echo the string, This is a test

Open in new window


I hope that makes sense and helps you out a bit, however as mentioned please don't accept this as the answer as the other guys have already correctly answered it.
