PHP Escape Sequences And Their Meanings (Continued) – String Function

 
\"          Print the next character as a double quote rather than treating it as a string terminator
 
\'          Print the next character as a single quote rather than treating it as a string terminator
 
\n          Print a new line character
 
\t          Print a tab character
 
\r          Print a carriage return (used primarily on Windows)
 
\$          Print the next character as a dollar rather than treating it as part of a variable name
 
\\          Print the next character as a backslash rather than treating it as an escape character
 Here is a code example of these escape sequences in action:    <?php
            $MyString = "This is an \"escaped\" string";
            $MySingleString = 'This \'will\' work';
            $MyNonVariable = "I have \$zilch in my pocket";
            $MyNewline = "This ends with a line return\n";
            $MyFile = "c:\\windows\\system32\\myfile.txt";
    ?>
