PHP | highlight_string() function

The highlight_string() function is an inbuilt function in PHP which is used to highlight the text string. It returns output in HTML text format.

Syntax:

highlight_string( $string, $return )

Parameters: This function accepts two parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • $string: It is the required parameter which specifies the text to be highlighted.
  • $return: It is the optional parameter. If it is True then it provides a highlighted code as a string, instead of printing it on the screen.

Return Value: If it is True then it returns highlighted code as a string, otherwise false on failure.

Below programs illustrate the highlight_string() function in PHP.



Program 1:

<?php
highlight_string('Welcome to Geeksforgeeks');
?>

/div>

<code><span style="color: #000000">
<span style="color: #0000BB"><?php phpinfo</span><span style="color: #007700">();
 </span><span style="color: #0000BB">?></span>
</span></code>

Program 2:

<?php
highlight_string('<?php
// PHP Program to add two numbers
  
function Add( $x, $y)
{
    $sum = $x + $y
      
    return $sum;
}
  
    // Driver Code
    echo Add(15, 32);
?>')
?>
