New line in shell/PHP script

hi all,

I wrote a PHP script inside which am calling a shell script,

In shell script, i used echo to output some results.

In PHP script i just gave echo to the shell script output. But i couldn't enter the output in newline.

Please help me!


PHP script

echo $out



for ((  i=1;i <= $qcount;i++))

if [[ $st = "Success" ]]; then
echo $question is posted successfully
echo "\r"
elif [[ $st = "This question is already asked by the user" ]]; then
echo $question is not posted - Reason: Duplicate question
echo "\r"
echo $question is not posted
echo "\r"

Here "\r" "\n" are not working as newline character.

in what format you are getting the output of below command ?

echo $out

if you getting the output as word by word ( as in newline ), then try

echo "$out"

yes am getting the output word by word.

if i use "$out" inside PHP, no results!

i tried to give,

echo '<table bgcolor='#E4F7FF' border='3'><tr><td>"$out"</td></tr>';

Use -e with echo
[root@server ~]# echo -e "Line1\nLine2"
[root@server ~]# echo "Line1\nLine2"

you are using ' (single quote), then the value $out will not print in the screen.

echo 'foo is $foo'; // foo is $foo

PHP: echo - Manual
