External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on PHP. Please take a moment to review my edit. You may add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it, if I keep adding bad data, but formatting bugs should be reported instead. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether, but should be used as a last resort. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true or failed to let others know (documentation at {{Sourcecheck}}).

YesY An editor has reviewed this edit and fixed any errors that were found.

Remove Hello World[edit]

Some years ago now I added the <?= 'Hello World'; to the syntax section. I think both this, and the "HTML" version should be removed. They're both unhelpful and misleading (the HTML one more so).

We should avoid focusing on PHP's use as a templating engine. While it was designed for exactly this, these days it's the last thing you should use it for.

Additionally, the part on PHP's delimiters is incorrect: there is no need to use ?> if there is nothing after the PHP, and it is recommended not to. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gisleburt (talkcontribs) 21:44, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

Hm, I'm not sure that not using ?> is actually recommended? — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 02:31, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
It is: http://php.net/manual/en/language.basic-syntax.phptags.php "If a file is pure PHP code, it is preferable to omit the PHP closing tag at the end of the file. This prevents accidental whitespace or new lines being added after the PHP closing tag, which may cause unwanted effects because PHP will start output buffering when there is no intention from the programmer to send any output at that point in the script." — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bbio1092 (talkcontribs) 21:52, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
