# the difference of echo&amp;print function

There is a difference between the two, but speed-wise it should be
irrelevant which one you use.  print() behaves like a function in that
you can do:  $ret = print "Hello World";And$ret will be 1That means
that print can be used as part of a more complex expression where echo
cannot.  print is also part of the precedence table which it needs to
be if it is to be used within a complex expression. It is just about at
the bottom of the precendence list though.  Only "," AND, OR and XOR
are lower.echo is marginally faster since it doesn't set a return value
if you really want to get down to the nitty gritty.If the grammar is:
echo expression [, expression[, expression] ... ]Then echo (
expression, expression ) is not valid.  ( expression ) reduces to just
an expression so this would be valid: echo ("howdy"),("partner");but
you would simply write this as: echo "howdy","partner"; if you wanted
to use two expression.  Putting the brackets in there serves no purpose
since there is no operator precendence issue with a single expression
like that.
