I was looking through some scripts over the weekend and came across a structure that I'm not familiar with...
$variable = <<<END
<a href="http://www.something.tld">Some HTML here</a>
I'm guessing it allows one to assign HTML to a variable, including quotes, without the need to use the backslash. Is that correct?
If so, then are there any restrictions or pitfalls?
If not, then what does it do?
Can anyone point me to a reference page for the structure?
