define

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

defineDefines a named constant

Description

bool define ( string $name , mixed $value [, bool $case_insensitive = false ] )

Defines a named constant at runtime.

Parameters

name

The name of the constant.

value

The value of the constant; only scalar and null values are allowed. Scalar values are integer, float, string or boolean values. It is possible to define resource constants, however it is not recommended and may cause unpredictable behavior.

If set to TRUE, the constant will be defined case-insensitive. The default behavior is case-sensitive; i.e. CONSTANT and Constant represent different values.

Note:

Case-insensitive constants are stored as lower-case.

Return Values

Examples

Example #1 Defining Constants

<?php
define
("CONSTANT""Hello world.");
echo 
CONSTANT// outputs "Hello world."
echo Constant// outputs "Constant" and issues a notice.

define("GREETING""Hello you."true);
echo 
GREETING// outputs "Hello you."
echo Greeting// outputs "Hello you."

?>
