    Different Between Echo and Print ?

  • #34764

    Hello Rushi,

    print is used to print a single line whereas we can use multiple lines with echo function.


    $str = “Hello meet”;

    $str1 = “Patel”;

    print $str;  // Output will display a “Hello meet” when you will run the script

    print $str,$str1; // Output of this line will be a syntax error.

    echo $str,$str1; // Output of this line will be a “Hello meet patel”;


    Moreover echo is faster than the print statement.

    Hello ,

    echo and print are more or less the same. They are both used to output data to the screen. The differences are small: echo has no return value while print has a return value of 1 so it can be used in expressions. echo can take multiple parameters (although such usage is rare) while print can take one argument.


    For Example :-

    echo “This “, “string “, “was “, “made “, “with multiple parameters.”; //this is valid

    Print “This “, “string “, “was “, “made “, “with multiple parameters.”; // this is not valid

    Hey Meet,

    In a nutshell, echo and print both are PHP Statement.
    Both are used to display the output in PHP.


    1. It can be used with or without parentheses;
    2. echo can pass multiple strings separated as ( , );
    3. echo doesn’t return any value


    1. Print can don’t pass multiple arguments
    2. Print always return 1
    3. It is slower than echo


    Hope this helps!
