PHP define variable using plain text
There’s a comfortable way to define variable in PHP.
$text = <<<QQQ
Often called the “Atlantis of the East” by travellers, the underwater city of Shicheng is a
magnificent, mysterious time capsule of Imperial China. Stone architecture dating
to the Ming and Qing dynasties (which ruled from 1368 to 1912) stands perfectly
preserved 40m under Qiandao Lake in Zhejiang province, 400km south of Shanghai.
Note, that closed construction QQQ must be set in the beginning of the line, no spaces.
