Functions


Functions allow us to reuse bits of code. For example, say that we are calculating tax on transactions. We can wrap up our code in a functional unit and give it a name:
<?php
function calculate_tax($price, $tax) {
    $sales_tax = $price *$tax;
    $total = $price + $sales_ tax;
    return $total;

}

?>

From then on we can just call that name and pass it some information (called arguments):

calculate_tax("53", "0.075")

This will save us time as well as make our code easier to review. Lets take a look at some more in-depth learning resources.

Recursion Function

Taken from php.net

<?php
function recursion($a)
{
    if (
$a 20) {
        echo 
"$a\n";
        
recursion($a 1);
    }
}

?>
