    New line in php?

    hi,

    Can anyone please tell me how to make a new line in php:

    PHP Code:
    echo "<tr>";
    echo 
    "<td><input type='checkbox' name='d$n' value='"$row->news_id."'></td>";
    echo 
    "<td>$row->formatted_date</td>";
    echo 
    "<td>"stripslashes($row->headline) ."</td>";
    echo 
    "<td>"stripslashes($row->season) ."</td>"
    I know it's adding /n to each line, but that's returning pesky errors?

    Thanks

    PHP Code:
    echo "<tr>";
    echo 
    "<td><input type='checkbox' name='d$n' value='"$row->news_id."'></td>";
    echo 
    "<td>$row->formatted_date</td>";
    echo 
    "<td>"stripslashes($row->headline) ."</td>";
    echo 
    "<td>"stripslashes($row->season) ."</td>"
    It is a back slash not a forward slash and it needs to be in double quotes.

    Like this
    PHP Code:
    echo "Add a new line \n"
    Not like this
    PHP Code:
    echo "This doesn't not work /n"

    Thanks,

    But say I was echoing a variable?

    PHP Code:
    echo "$pagelinks"

    PHP Code:
    echo "$pagelinks\n";
    //...or...
    echo $pagelinks "\n"
    Note that the "\n" must be in double quotes, as it does not have this special meaning within single quotes.

    what works for me also is a return character (\r) with a newline character(\n)
    so it would be: \r\n

    and dont forget that escape characters must be within quotes

    try this:
    PHP Code:
    echo "<br>"
    this provides an HTML new line

    Use the PHP_EOL which will automatically be \r\n or \n depending on if the server is windows or a linux installation.

    http://php.net/manual/en/reserved.constants.php

    If you have a document that you want displayed in a web browser page (but not in a text area) then use nl2br() function to convert all newlines in to <br /> tags.

    If you can't think outside the box, you will be trapped forever with no escape...

    I think that the OP is looking for this type of thing...

    PHP Code:
    echo "<tr>" PHP_EOL;
    echo 
    "<td><input type='checkbox' name='d$n' value='"$row->news_id."'></td>"PHP_EOL;
    echo 
    "<td>$row->formatted_date</td>"PHP_EOL;
    echo 
    "<td>"stripslashes($row->headline) ."</td>"PHP_EOL;
    echo 
    "<td>"stripslashes($row->season) ."</td>"PHP_EOL
    an alternative is to


    PHP Code:
    $out = array("<tr>",
    "<td><input type='checkbox' name='d$n' value='"$row->news_id."'></td>",
    "<td>$row->formatted_date</td>",
    "<td>"stripslashes($row->headline) ."</td>",
    "<td>"stripslashes($row->season) ."</td>");
    echo 
    implode(PHP_EOL,$out
    or use the HEREDOC method
