PHP Data Types

Variables can store data of different types, and different data types can do different things.

PHP supports the following data types:

  • String
  • Integer
  • Float (floating point numbers – also called double)
  • Boolean
  • Array
  • Object
  • NULL
  • Resource
PHP String

A string is a sequence of characters, like “Hello world!”.

A string can be any text inside quotes. You can use single or double quotes:

$x = "Hello world!";
$y = 'Hello world!';

echo $x;
echo "<br>"; 
echo $y;
PHP Integer

An integer data type is a non-decimal number between -2,147,483,648 and 2,147,483,647.

Rules for integers:

  • An integer must have at least one digit
  • An integer must not have a decimal point
  • An integer can be either positive or negative
  • Integers can be specified in three formats: decimal (10-based), hexadecimal (16-based – prefixed with 0x) or octal (8-based – prefixed with 0)

In the following example $x is an integer. The PHP var_dump() function returns the data type and value:

$x = 5985;
PHP Float

A float (floating point number) is a number with a decimal point or a number in exponential form.

In the following example $x is a float. The PHP var_dump() function returns the data type and value:

$x = 10.365;
 PHP Boolean

A Boolean represents two possible states: TRUE or FALSE.

$x = true;
$y = false;

Booleans are often used in conditional testing. You will learn more about conditional testing in a later chapter of this tutorial.

 PHP Array

An array stores multiple values in one single variable.

In the following example $cars is an array. The PHP var_dump() function returns the data type and value:

$cars = array("Volvo","BMW","Toyota");

You will learn a lot more about arrays in later chapters of this tutorial.
