What is the difference between echo and print statement?..

Answer / hari

There is a slight difference between print and echo which
would depend on how you want to use
the outcome. Using the print method can return a true/false
value. This may be helpful during a
script execution of somesort. Echo does not return a value,
but has been considered as a faster
executed command. All this can get into a rather complicated
discussion, so for now, you can
just use whichever one you prefer
