    i'm writing an anti-spam routine and i want to know if this is the correct format:

    if($use_nobot_check == "yes" && $color == "") {
    echo "<body bgcolor=#D3D3D3>\n<h1>You did not answer the Anti-Spambot question. Hit your Back button, enter the correct answer and then resubmit the form.</h1>\n</body>\n";
    exit;
    }

    firstly, this is php code and not perl.

    secondly it will do this:

    if they did not answer the correct color, it will tell them to go back and answer it.

    1. yes, you are correct. it's php and not perl! :eek:

    2. i know what it does, i want to know if i wrote it correctly. :confused:

    for example, what is the difference between these (if any):

    echo ("You answered the Anti-Spambot question incorrectly");
    echo "You answered the Anti-Spambot question incorrectly";

    they seem to work the same, and i've seen both formats used in scripts... :confused:
