Term Description Vocab
Variable

variable is a predefined named location for storing temporary data.

Variables are similar to fields, though their data is less permanent and they are more flexible in the types of data they may contain.

Each variable is bound to specific information stored in memory until it is no longer needed, and is controlled by the computer language that generates the web page.

ResourceHighway uses the PHP language to generate web pages.

The term variable may also be used to refer to text strings that act like variables, such as placeholder variables.
