php - What does '$' do in a git commit message?


I was reviewing my git log and saw a commit message that didn't make sense.

It said: Updated all to use -> instead. (note the double space in all__to)

When I ran history in my bash session, it shows:

641 git commit -m "Updated all $microsoftReference to use $this->$allMicrosoftIDs instead."

So, either Git or Bash is interpretting the $ and

The app is PHP 8.1.0, so $microsoftReference is a variable and $this refers to a $classObject->property.

FWIW, I'm using Git Bash on Windoze 10.

My Answer:
PHP stands for Hypertext Preprocessor. It is a server-side scripting language used for web development. PHP code is embedded within HTML code to create dynamic web pages. PHP can interact with databases, handle form data, and perform various other tasks on the server side.
