I use both upper and lowercase for custom function/class names like: myFunction()Variables, always lowercase: $my_variableConstants, always uppercase: MY_CONSTANTKeywords/built-in functions, always lowercase.

Yeah, for constants though I use uppercase.- variables lowercase

$myvar; $anothervar

- functions (including built-in) lowercase

checkpass(); print();

- constants uppercase (as I mentioned above)

define("TEN_BY_TEN", (10*10)); $hundred = TEN_BY_TEN;

- keywords lowercase

if($x == 5) print("\$x is 5");

- operators if in letters

copy($file, $dir) or print("Couldn't copy $file"); if($x == 5 and $y == 5) print("Both \$x and \$y are 5");

I also have a habit of having print() having parenthenses. I never use echo but if I would it wouldn't have semicolons as PHP Group wrote in their manual that echo is more a statement instead of a function and print is more a function instead of a statement. My habit has all functions having parenthenses and statements have only if required.

The only thing I use uppercase for is constants. Everything else is lowercase, if I have an identifier that is more than one word I separate them with underscores.

I think you mean parentheses. All statements are terminated by a semicolon (;).
