Echo vs print


Print and Echo are actually both called language constructs .
echo
  • echo is faster
  • Echo does not return a value, but has been considered as a faster executed command.
  • echo is a construct. echo takes multiple parameters.
  • echo is just an statement not a function.
print
  • print is slower.
  • Print returns a value much like a normal function would. But despite common belief, Print is not a function, as we can see by the fact that it doesn’t require parenthesis to work.
  • Returning a value degrades system performance.
  • Using the print method can return a true/false value. This may be helpful during a script execution of some sort.
  • print is also a construct but print does not take multiple parameters.
