What Is A String In Programming

A string is a data type [→] that stores a character, text or numbers as text.

String as data can represent a whole vasriatity of things from user names, product descriptions, file paths, user input in general etc.

Programming languages will typically denote a string by putting the characters between quotes.

Here is an example in PHP:

01: <?php 02: 03: name = "John Doe"; 04: 05: description = 'John is a person';

As shown above we have two strings the first in double-qoutes and the second in single qoutes, both denote a string.
