[php] How can I write to the console in PHP?

Is it possible write a string or log into the console?

What I mean

Just like in JSP, if we print something like system.out.println("some"), it will be there at the console, not at a page.

This question is related to php debugging printing console

The answer is

Or you use the trick from PHP Debug to console.

First you need a little PHP helper function

function debug_to_console($data) {
    $output = $data;
    if (is_array($output))
        $output = implode(',', $output);

    echo "<script>console.log('Debug Objects: " . $output . "' );</script>";

Then you can use it like this:


This will create an output like this:

Debug Objects: Test
