Special Characters in Double-Quoted Strings in PHP

Q

What Are the Special Characters You Need to Escape in Double-Quoted Stings?

There are two special characters you need to escape in a double-quote string: the double quote (") and the back slash (\). Here is a PHP script example of double-quoted strings:

<?php 
echo "Hello world!"; 
echo "Tom said: \"Who's there?\""; 
echo "\\ represents an operator."; 
?>

This script will print:

Hello world!Tom said: "Who's there?"\ represents an operator.
