PHP – Highlighted PHP code in output

highlight_string is use to highlight the given php code use the color defined in built in syntax.

This function has two parameter:
First: the string
Second: the bool ture or false
If return is set to TRUE,  returns the highlighted code as a string instead of printing it out

<?php
$string = "<?php echo 'hi' ?>";
$output = highlight_string($string, true);
echo $output;
?>
Another code example to get the contents from a file and then highlight the php code: 
<?php
highlight_string(file_get_contents('test.php' ), false);
?>

The code will get the contents of the test.php file and output them.
