PHP: Tips of the Day

var_export(): var_export() dumps a PHP parseable representation of the item.

You can pass true as the second parameter to return the contents into a variable.

Example:

<?php
$myarray = [ "PHP", "Tips" ];
$mystring = "PHP Tips";
$myint = 28;

var_export($myarray);
var_export($mystring);
var_export($myint);
?>

Output:

array (
  0 => 'PHP',
  1 => 'Tips',
)'PHP Tips'28

To put the content into a variable, you can do this:

$array_export = var_export($myarray, true);
$string_export = var_export($mystring, true);
$int_export = var_export($myint, 1); // any `Truthy` value

After that, you can output it like this:

printf('$myarray = %s; %s', $array_export, PHP_EOL);
printf('$mystring = %s; %s', $string_export, PHP_EOL);
printf('$myint = %s; %s', $int_export, PHP_EOL);

Example:

<?php
$myarray = [ "PHP", "Tips" ];
$mystring = "PHP Tips";
$myint = 28;
$array_export = var_export($myarray, true);
$string_export = var_export($mystring, true);
$int_export = var_export($myint, 1);
printf('$myarray = %s; %s', $array_export, PHP_EOL);
printf('$mystring = %s; %s', $string_export, PHP_EOL);
printf('$myint = %s; %s', $int_export, PHP_EOL);
?>

This will produce the following output:

Output:

$myarray = array (
  0 => 'PHP',
  1 => 'Tips',
);
$mystring = 'PHP Tips';
$myint = 28;
