Tags PHP

Quando o PHP interpreta um arquivo ele procura pelas tags de abertura e fechamento, <?php e ?>, que dizem ao PHP para iniciar ou parar a interpretação do código entre elas. A interpretação dessa maneira, permite o PHP ser incluído em vários tipos de documentos, pois tudo que está fora dessas tags é ignorado pelo interpretador do PHP.

O PHP também permite a tag curta <? (cujo uso é desencorajado pois essa opção está disponível somente quando habilitada na diretiva short_open_tag no arquivo de configuração php.ini, ou quando o PHP tiver sido compilado com a opção --enable-short-tags ).

Se um arquivo for código PHP puro, é preferível omitir a tag de fechamento no final do arquivo. Prevenindo a existência de espaços ou linhas em branco após a tag, que podem causar efeitos indesejáveis, por que o PHP iniciará o buffer de saída quando não existir intenção do programador de enviar alguma saída neste ponto do script.

<?php
echo "Hello world";

// ... mais código

echo "última instrução";

// o script termina aqui, sem tag de fechamento PHP

Regarding earlier note by @purkrt :

> I would like to stress out that the opening tag is "<?php[whitespace]", not just "<?php"

This is absolutely correct, but the wording may confuse some developers less familiar with the extent of the term "[whitespace]".

Whitespace, in this context, would be any character that generated vertical or horizontal space, including tabs ( \t ), newlines ( \n ), and carriage returns ( \r ), as well as a space character ( \s ). So reusing purkrt's example:

<?php/*blah*/ echo "a"?>

would not work, as mentioned, but :

<?php /*php followed by space*/ echo "a"?>

will work, as well as :

<?php
/*php followed by end-of-line*/ echo "a"?>

and :

<?php    /*php followed by tab*/ echo "a"?>

I just wanted to clarify this to prevent anyone from misreading purkrt's note to mean that a the opening tag --even when being on its own line--required a space ( \s ) character. The following would work but is not at all necessary or how the earlier comment should be interpreted :

<?php
/*php followed by a space and end-of-line*/ echo "a"?>

The end-of-line character is whitespace, so it is all that you would need.

New lines placed after PHP closing tags are ignored;

<?= "A"?>
B
<?= "C"?>

Output:
AB
C

Closing PHP tags are recognised within single-line comments:

    <?php
   
// Code will end here ?> This is output as literal text.

    <?php
   
# Same with this method of commenting ?> This is output as literal text.

However they do not have an effect in C-style comments:

    <?php
   
/* Code will not end here ?> as closing tags are ignored inside C-style comments. */
   
?>

Omit closing tag ?> always whenever you can

example:
<!DOCTYPE html><head>
<title><?php include'varia.php'; echo$title?></title>
</head><body></body></html>

varia.php
<?php
$title
= 'Welcome';
?>
[new line]        //other words: an extra 'Enter' is guilty
---------------

and you get:

Welcome - at the browser label

source won't tell you what happened - there will be fine:

<!DOCTYPE html><head>
<title>Welcome</title>
</head><body></body></html>

Now imagine, what else can go wrong because of it? Everything, as Murphy said.
And you will look for the answer why...? And where...?
It's just simplest example.
