Merry Christmas

Hello World with Holiday Flare

By

Since the dawn of time (okey, since the 70s) the traditional first program you write in any language is a "Hello World" program. This is a program that simply outputs the words Hello, World to the screen. Nothing else, nothing fancy, just saying hello.

It is a holiday tradition here at About.com to modify our Hello Worlds a little bit this time of year, to give them some holiday flare. So without further ado, here is the "Merry Christmas World" PHP script.

Using Print

 <?php 
 Print "Merry Christmas, World!";
 ?>
 

Using Echo

 <?php 
 Echo "Merry Christmas, World!";
 ?>
