"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Here are various ways of dumping variables and doing output - not sure what your application is but one of these should fit the bill
print_r()
var_dump()
print
var_export
printf

Then there is HEREDOC
$string = 'variables';
echo <<< LOTSOFTEXT
<p>
Any text, <b>tags</b> "double quotes" or 'single quotes' and {$string}
Over as many lines
as required.
</p>
LOTSOFTEXT;

Dear Julian Hansen,

how would you write the below code if you were the writer?

<input type=hidden  name=id value='<?php echo $id ?>'

It depends - if it was outside of a PHP block i.e. in an HTML block then as you have it except I would enclose my attributes in double quotes

<input type="hidden"  name="id" value="<?php echo $id ?>">

Open in new window


If it is part of a code block I would use HEREDOC
<?php
...
echo <<< HTML
<input type="hidden"  name="id" value="{$id}">
HMTL;
...
