PHP 标记

当解析一个文件时,PHP 会寻找起始和结束标记,也就是 <?php?>,这告诉 PHP 开始和停止解析二者之间的代码。此种解析方式使得 PHP 可以被嵌入到各种不同的文档中去,而任何起始和结束标记之外的部分都会被 PHP 解析器忽略。

PHP 有一个 echo 标记简写 <?=, 它是更完整的 <?php echo 的简写形式。

示例 #1 PHP 开始和结束标记

1.  <?php echo 'if you want to serve PHP code in XHTML or XML documents,
                 use these tags'
 2.  You can use the short echo tag to <?= 'print this string' ?>.
     It's equivalent to <?php echo 'print this string' ?>.
 3.  <? echo 'this code is within short tags, but will only work '.
         'if short_open_tag is enabled'; ?>

Short tags (example three) are available by default but can be disabled either via the short_open_tag php.ini configuration file directive, or are disabled by default if PHP is built with the --disable-short-tags configuration.


As short tags can be disabled it is recommened to only use the normal tags (<?php ?> and <?= ?>) to maximise compatibility.

如果文件内容仅仅包含 PHP 代码,最好在文件末尾删除 PHP 结束标记。这可以避免在 PHP 结束标记之后万一意外加入了空格或者换行符,会导致 PHP 开始输出这些空白,而脚本中此时并无输出的意图。

echo "Hello world";
// ... more code
echo "Last statement";
// 脚本至此结束,并无 PHP 结束标记

When php parse a file,it looks for opening and closing tag.php parser interpreting  the code between opening and closing tag and allows php to be embedded in all shorts of different documents.Outside of opening and closing tag is ignored by the php parser.

Now php recommended you to use only two tags.

1.Standard tag which is <?php echo "I'm Standard tag"; ?>
2.Short echo tag which is <?= "I'm Short echo tag"; ?>

Both are not affected by php ini configuration file directive.

Although php also allow short open tag which is discoursed but still available if php was configured with --enable-short-tags or  short_open_tag is enabled in php ini configuration file directive.

if you want to use php in combination with xml,you can disable short_open_tag in order to use <?xml ?> inline.
Otherwise, you can print it with PHP, for example: <?php echo '<?xml version="1.0"?>'; ?>

short_echo_tag also affected the short echo tag before 5.4.0
since 5.4.0,short echo tag is always available.

asp tag <% %> and <%= > are removed from php 7
script tag <script language="php"> <script/> also removed from php 7

It is preferable to omit the closing tag if a file only contain the php code.
<?php echo "a statement";
"another statement";

It prevent unwanted whitespace or new line being added after the closing tag.

این توضیح فارسی است || this note is persian

برای شروع کد زدن پی اچ پی از تگ
<?php   ?>
استفاده میکنیم

تگ فوق استاندارد است

همچنین میتوانیم از
<? ?>
استفاده کنیم که درون کد های اچ تی ام ال کاربرد وسیع دارد

همچنین میتوانیم از تگ
<!  !>
استفاده کنیم که باید در قسمت کانفیگ آپاچی آن را ست کنیم که البته توصیه نمیشود.

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 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 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.
