How do I print out a set of variables with a space between them. Sounds as though it should be simple as could be and perhaps it is,, however when you don't know how its maddening!

example:

Code:
<?php 

$body1 = $LeadFirstName;
$body2 = $LeadLastName;

echo ($body1);
echo ($body2);


echo 'Thank you for registering.  Your free ebook will be emailed to you within 48 hours.';


?>
This prints out


sallysmithThank you for registering. Your free ebook will be emailed to you within 48 hours.


Assuming of course that sally is the first name and smith is the last name used when registering on the form.

What I cant figure out how to do is make it space between sally and smith ($body1 and $body2).

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I only have experience in C++, but the concept should be the same.

Try echoing a space between the variables.

Code:
<?php
$body1 = $LeadFirstName;
$body2 = $LeadLastName;
echo ($body1);
echo ' '
echo ($body2);
echo ' '
echo 'Thank you for registering.  Your free ebook will be emailed to you within 48 hours.';
?>

It'd be easier as:

Code:
<?php 

$body1 = $LeadFirstName;
$body2 = $LeadLastName;

echo ("$body1 $body2 ");

echo 'Thank you for registering.  Your free ebook will be emailed to you within 48 hours.';

?>
Or even:
Code:
<?php 

$names = "$LeadFirstName $LeadLastName";

echo ("$names ");

echo 'Thank you for registering.  Your free ebook will be emailed to you within 48 hours.';

?>

Gizmo you are correct. I tried your first example but was messing up my syntax and I tried several variations of your second one. However when I type it correctly as you have shown it is much easier! Thanks for the help!

You could also do something like:
Code:
<?php 

$names = "$LeadFirstName $LeadLastName";

echo ("$names, Thank you for registering.  Your free ebook will be emailed to you within 48 hours.");

?>
Or even:
Code:
<?php 

echo ("$LeadFirstName $LeadLastName, Thank you for registering.  Your free ebook will be emailed to you within 48 hours.");

?>

Nods.

PHP is very nice and forgiving with variables. You will also find numbers can be used as both char and int values. That is you can treat them as a string of text or in a math equation without creating a new variable. THis is not the case in most other languages, one or the other. PHP says, fuck it, your a number, we can do math, and fuck it, a number is a charater too.

AMEN!

Code:
<?php
     $one = "55";
     $two = "97";
     $type = "*";

     $math = $one $type $two;

     echo("$one $type $two equals $math");
?>

You could just
Code:
echo "some text";
or
Code:
print "some text";
or
Code:
<?="some text";?>

lol no it doesn't. It is two more charaters everytime you echo out something.
