Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Defining a constant in PHP can come in handy when working with a value that will be used throughout your script. What is a constant exactly? According to PHP.net, “A constant is an identifier (name) for a simple value“. One important thing you need to know is that, like its name states, a constant cannot be changed. That is pretty much the main difference between a constant and a variable.
Here is a basic example:
echo SITE // outputs bavotasan.com
echo AUTHOR // outputs c.bavota
echo SITE." by ".AUTHOR // outputs bavotasan.com by c.bavota?>
Simple enough. Just remember that constants are case sensitive, so this wouldn’t work:
Unless, of course, you set a third parameter within the define() function to control the case. By default, it is set to false, which is case-sensitive. To make it case-insensitive, all you need to do is set that third parameter to true.
Please let me know if you nea case for torture by michale levined any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
