Function calls and strings - PHP Development

Hello. PHP possesses what the manual calls "complex syntax" for allowing one to include non-trivial expressions in strings, e.g.: $s = "The result is {$results[$foo]}."; I seek to find out whether PHP also has a syntax to allow function calls within a string, so that explicit concatenation is not needed. E.g.: something like: $s = "The result is {getResult($foo)}."; as opposed to $s = "The result is " . getResult($foo) . "."; If that is not possible, I would appreciate if someone could suggest the rationale. Thank you, -- Ney André de Mello Zunino...

    Default Function calls and strings

    Hello.

    PHP possesses what the manual calls "complex syntax" for allowing one to
    include non-trivial expressions in strings, e.g.:

    $s = "The result is {$results[$foo]}.";

    I seek to find out whether PHP also has a syntax to allow function calls
    within a string, so that explicit concatenation is not needed. E.g.:

    something like:

    $s = "The result is {getResult($foo)}.";

    as opposed to

    $s = "The result is " . getResult($foo) . ".";

    If that is not possible, I would appreciate if someone could suggest the
    rationale.

    Thank you,

    How do I tell it NOT to call the function, i want to just store
    this in a string:

    $s = "The result is {getResult(\$foo)}.";
    echo $s;

    ---
    The result is {getResult($foo)).
