Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video Function arguments, part of PHP Essential Training.
- [Instructor] In the last movie,…we learned how to define and to call functions.…In this movie,…we'll gain a better understanding…of how we go about working with arguments to our functions.…Let's create ourselves a new file for this,…and open up basic.html,…and we'll do Save As,…and this one is going to be called…functions_arguments.php.…And then let's change this up here to be…Functions: Arguments,…and let's start out with just the basic…say_hello_to function that we used in the last movie,…which has one argument, $word.…
Right, so we've already worked with arguments before,…we've seen one. Here it is.…We've defined a variable, $word,…that we know we're going to pass a value into.…We pass in the string "Everyone" to that,…and that "Everyone" gets assigned to $word,…and that's what's available for use…inside the function, then.…We already know how that works.…I just want to show you a slight revision of that,…let's say that we have another variable here…called "John Doe",…and instead of passing in "Everyone",…we're going to pass in the variable $name.…
