I'm relatively new to PHP and I'm trying to understand the difference between DEFINE and Variable in PHP. I've come across these terms while going through some PHP code, but I'm not entirely sure about their distinctions.
From what I gather, variables are used to store values that can be changed throughout the execution of a PHP script. They allow us to assign and manipulate data dynamically. On the other hand, I've also seen the use of the DEFINE function in PHP, which seems to define constants that remain unchanged throughout the script execution.
I'm a bit confused about when to use DEFINE and when to use variables. Can someone please clarify their differences and provide some examples to illustrate their use cases? Additionally, it would be great if you could explain any specific situations where one is preferred over the other.
Thank you in advance for your help!
