Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: PHP: Double variable filenames

    PHP: Double variable filenames

    Hi. I was wondering: can files be named using 2 variables?
    something like:
    Code:
    $a="not";
    $b="_now";
    touch("$a$b.txt");
    If anyone knows how to do this, please tell me. Thank you.

    have you tested it? and if so, do you get any errors? what are the errors? what file is created instead? so many questions...

    You can never underestimate the stupidity of the general public.

    well...that file was supposed to be named "not_now.txt", but was named "$a$b.txt"...but I just found out that I should be concatenating the strings, so it would look like this:
    Code:
    touch($a . $b . ".txt")
    Anyway...thanks...
