PHP underpins the accompanying information types:

  • String
  • Integer
  • Float (coasting point numbers - additionally called double)
  • Boolean
  • Array
  • Object
  • NULL
  • Resource

PHP String

A string is a grouping of characters, as "Hello PHP5!".

A string can be any content inside statements. You can utilize single or twofold quotes:


$x = "Hello PHP5!";
$y = 'Hi PHP5!';

echo $x;
echo "<br>";
echo $y;

PHP Integer

An whole number information type is a non-decimal number between - 3,154,324,789 and 3,154,324,789.

Rules for integers:

  • An number must have no less than one digit
  • An number must not have a decimal point
  • An number can be either positive or negative

In the accompanying model $x is a whole number. The PHP var_dump() work restores the information type and value:


$x = 5985;

PHP Float

A skimming point number is a number with a decimal point or a number in exponential form.

In the accompanying precedent $x is a buoy. The PHP var_dump() work restores the information type and value:


$x = 15.528;

    work Car() {
        $this->model = "VW";

Variables can likewise be purged by setting the incentive to NULL:


$x = "Hello PHP5!";
$x = null;

PHP Resource
