Logical Operators
Logical operators are used when we want to combine operations and expressions into a set of logical comparisons. They are usually used in conjuction with "if and "else" statements to lay out the dynamic logic we need in many situations as we advance in our PHP development. We discuss if and else statements in later lessons.

The following table shows their usage and result logic:
Name Usage Result
And $var1 && $var2 TRUE if both $var1 and $var2 are TRUE
And $var1 and $var2 TRUE if both $var1 and $var2 are TRUE
Or $var1 or $var2 TRUE if either $var1 or $var2 is TRUE
Or $var1 || $var2 TRUE if either $var1 or $var2 is TRUE
Xor $var1 xor $var2 TRUE if either $var1 or $var2 is TRUE, but not both
Is Not !$var1 TRUE if $var1 is not TRUE

There are two different variations of "and" and "or" operators because they operate at different precedences.

Here we use an if and else statement(discussed in detail later) to use the "&&" logical operator:

// change these 2 values to see the results if numbers do not match in our expressions
$var1 43;
$var2 56;

if ((
$var1 == 43) && ($var2 == 56)) {
"Yes, the values produce the match we want.";
} else {
"No, the values do not match yet.";

Yes, the values produce the match we want.
