Une constante est un identifiant (un nom) qui représente une valeur simple. Comme son nom le suggère, cette valeur ne peut jamais être modifiée durant l'exécution du script (sauf les constantes magiques). Par défaut, le nom d'une constante est sensible à la casse. Par convention, les constantes sont toujours en majuscules.

Les noms de constantes suivent les mêmes règles que n'importe quel nom en PHP. Un nom de constante valide commence par une lettre ou un souligné, suivi d'un nombre quelconque de lettres, chiffres ou soulignés. Sous forme d'expression régulière, cela peut s'exprimer comme ceci : [a-zA-Z_\x7f-\xff][a-zA-Z0-9_\x7f-\xff]*

Exemple #1 Noms valides et invalides pour les constantes

// Noms valides
define("FOO",     "something");
define("FOO2",    "something else");
define("FOO_BAR""something more");

// Noms invalides
define("2FOO",    "something");

// Ce nom est valide, mais évitez-le:
// PHP peut un jour fournir une constante magique nommée
// ainsi, ce qui va corrompre vos scripts.

Note: Dans cette documentation, une lettre peut être un des caractères suivants : de a à z, de A à Z et tous les caractères ASCII de 127 à 255 (0x7f-0xff).

Tout comme les superglobals, les constantes sont accessibles de manière globale. Vous pouvez les définir n'importe où, et y accéder depuis n'importe quelle fonction.

CONSTANTS and PHP Class Definitions

Using "define('MY_VAR', 'default value')" INSIDE a class definition does not work as expected. You have to use the PHP keyword 'const' and initialize it with a scalar value -- boolean, int, float, string (or array in PHP 5.6+) -- right away.

('MIN_VALUE', '0.0');   // RIGHT - Works OUTSIDE of a class definition.
Black Rieker Mens Black Zipper Boots M
define('MAX_VALUE', '1.0');   // RIGHT - Works OUTSIDE of a class definition.

//const MIN_VALUE = 0.0;         RIGHT - Works both INSIDE and OUTSIDE of a class definition.
//const MAX_VALUE = 1.0;         RIGHT - Works both INSIDE and OUTSIDE of a class definition.

class Constants
//define('MIN_VALUE', '0.0');  WRONG - Works OUTSIDE of a class definition.
  //define('MAX_VALUE', '1.0');  WRONG - Works OUTSIDE of a class definition.

const MIN_VALUE = 0.0;      // RIGHT - Works INSIDE of a class definition.
const MAX_VALUE = 1.0;      // RIGHT - Works INSIDE of a class definition.

  public static function


#Example 1:
You can access these constants DIRECTLY like so:
* type the class name exactly.
* type two (2) colons.
* type the const name exactly.

#Example 2:
Because our class definition provides two (2) static functions, you can also access them like so:
* type the class name exactly.
* type two (2) colons.
* type the function name exactly (with the parentheses).

#Example 1:
$min = Constants::Black Boots Rieker Black M Mens Zipper MIN_VALUE;
$max = Constants::MAX_VALUE;

#Example 2:
$min = Constants::getMinValue();
$max = Constants::getMaxValue();


Once class constants are declared AND initialized, they cannot be set to different values -- that is why there are no setMinValue() and setMaxValue() functions in the class definition -- which means they are READ-ONLY and STATIC (shared by all instances of the class).

class constant are by default public in nature but they cannot be assigned visibility factor and in turn gives syntax error

class constants {

MAX_VALUE = Zipper Rieker M Black Mens Boots Black 10;
        public const

Black Boots Zipper Black Mens M Rieker

// This will work
echo constants::MAX_VALUE;

// This will return syntax error
echo constants::MIN_VALUE;

Warning, constants used within the heredoc syntax ( are not interpreted!

Editor's Note: This is true. PHP has no way of recognizing the constant from any other string of characters within the heredoc block.

I find using the concatenation operator helps disambiguate value assignments with constants. For example, setting constants in a global configuration file:

define('LOCATOR',   "/locator");
define('CLASSES',   LOCATOR."/code/classes");
defineBlack Black Zipper Mens Rieker M Boots ('FUNCTIONS', LOCATOR."/code/functions");
define('USERDIR',   LOCATOR."/user");

Later, I can use the same convention when invoking a constant's value for static constructs such as require() calls:


as well as dynamic constructs, typical of value assignment to variables:

$userid  = randchar(8,'anc','u');
$usermap = USERDIR."/".$userid.".png";

The above convention works for me, and helps produce self-documenting code.

PHP Modules also define constants.  Make sure to avoid constant name collisions.  There are two ways to do this that I can think of.
First: in your code make sure that the constant name is not already used.  ex. if (! defined("CONSTANT_NAME"Boots Mens Rieker Black Zipper M Black )) {Define("CONSTANT_NAME","Some Value"); } ?>  This can get messy when you start thinking about collision handling, and the implications of this.
Second: Use some off prepend to all your constant names without exception  ex. ("SITE_CONSTANT_NAME","Some Value"); ?>

Perhaps the developers or documentation maintainers could recommend a good prepend and ask module writers to avoid that prepend in modules.

An undefined constant evaluates as true when not used correctly. Say for example you had something like this:

// Debug mode


if (
// echo some sensitive data.
Mens Rieker Boots Black Black M Zipper

If for some reason settings.php doesn't get included and the DEBUG constant is not set, PHP will STILL print the sensitive data. The solution is to evaluate it. Like so:

// Debug mode


if (
DEBUG == 1) {
// echo some sensitive data.

Now it works correctly.

Lets expand comment of 'storm' about usage of undefined constants. His claim that 'An undefined constant evaluates as true...' is wrong and right at same time. As said further in documentation ' If you use an undefined constant, PHP assumes that you mean the name of the constant itself, just as if you called it as a string...'. So yeah, undefined global constant when accessed directly will be resolved as string equal to name of sought constant (as thought PHP supposes that programmer had forgot apostrophes and autofixes it) and non-zero non-empty string converts to True.

There are two ways to prevent this:
1. always use function constant('CONST_NAME') to get constant value (BTW it also works for class constants - constant('CLASS_NAME::CONST_NAME') );
Black Zipper M Rieker Boots Black Mens
2. use only class constants (that are defined inside of class using keyword const) because they are not converted to string when not found but throw exception instead (Fatal error: Undefined class constant).

If you are looking for predefined constants like
* PHP_OS (to show the operating system, PHP was compiled for; php_uname('s') might be more suitable),
* DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR ("\\" on Win, '/' Linux,...)
* PATH_SEPARATOR (';' on Win, ':' on Linux,...)
they are buried in 'Predefined Constants' under 'List of Reserved Words' in the appendix:
while the latter two are also mentioned in 'Directory Functions'

Performance of constants.  PHP 7.1.10 32 bits (Opcache active, windows 10 i7-64bits) but apparently the trends is the same with the 5.x

using a constant declared by DEFINE('CNS',value) : 0.63575601577759s
Rieker Mens Boots Black M Black Zipper
using a constant declared by const CNS=value : 0.61372208595276s
using a variable declared by $v=value : 0.51184010505676s

In average, the use of DEFINE and CONST is around the same with some sightly  better performance of CONST instead of DEFINE. However, using a variable is around 10-50% better than to use a constant.  So, for a performance intensive task, constant is not the best option.

It is perfectly valid to use a built-in PHP keyword as a constant name - as long as you the constant() function to retrieve it later:

When we start a constant name with space, it doesn't produce any error.

  define (" YEAR"2000)

output: success

But when we call this constant, it produce error.

  define (" YEAR"2000)

output: E_NOTICE :  type 8 -- Use of undefined constant YEAR - assumed 'YEAR' -- at line 4 YEAR
