We discussed statements briefly in our last article and even got a sneak peek of an IF-statement. Sure I mean, the image was blurry, and the moment it saw us it ran off into the forest. But we saw it. Honest. So in this article, we're going to take a much closer look at PHP statements and even start learning about loops.
What's the deal with Bigfoot sightings anyway? And UFO sightings. I'm a firm believer in both mind you (the idea of a 12-foot-tall gorilla as my butler makes me all warm and fuzzy inside), but how come no one can take a video where it isn't either blurry, the camera isn't shaking, or the person spends half of the tape filming their own feet?
I mean I can understand the shaky camera part. A giant hairy dude in the middle of a forest watching you might make you tremble in your boots a little. Of course that person would also tremble watching a Robin Williams flick. If you ever need proof of a Sasquatch with a growth disorder, you need look no further. The guy looks like he stapled shag carpeting to his body.
Sometimes in a program you want to have a piece of code execute when a condition is met. To do this, you use conditional statements. There are three types of these in PHP. These are the If statement, the Else statement, and the Elseif statement.
