I have been learning PHP programming for a while now and I recently came across the concepts of pre-increment and post-increment operators. I have a basic understanding of these operators, but I'm not entirely sure about the difference between them.
From what I understand, these operators are used to increment a value by 1, but I'm not sure why there are two different operators for the same purpose. Can someone explain to me the difference between pre-increment and post-increment operators in PHP?
I would appreciate it if you could provide some examples that illustrate the distinction between these two operators. Additionally, it would be helpful if you could explain in what situations each operator is typically used.
Thank you in advance for your help!
