PHP Functions

Sprout Video

We already know what to write when we want to use some PHP code, how to set a variable, and how to print things. Like most languages, PHP also has functions that make it easier to do more complex tasks. Instead of you needing to figure out all of the logic to accomplish something, like randomizing a number, you can just use an existing PHP function, like rand(), to do the work for you. In this lesson, you'll learn how to use a function, what arguments are and how they work, and use some examples in our demo site code.
