I'm new to PHP and I'm currently working on a project that involves manipulating and comparing strings. I'm a bit confused about how to use operators in PHP specifically for string operations. Can anyone help me out?
To give you some context, I'm trying to perform tasks like concatenating strings, extracting a portion of a string, finding the length of a string, and comparing different strings for equality or sorting purposes. I've learned about operators like concatenation (.), the equality operator (==), and the comparison operators (>, <, >=, <=), but I'm not sure how to apply them to strings.
For example, let's say I have two strings, $name1 and $name2. I want to check if they are the same and perform some action based on the result. How do I do that? Additionally, how can I find the length of a string and extract a portion of it?
I would really appreciate it if someone could guide me through the usage of operators to manipulate and compare strings in PHP.
Thanks in advance!
