adding strings

Recommended Posts


I tried searching and couldn't find anything...

My problem is that i have a script that grabs the name of a file from a directory and I'm sending it to notepad. One of the variables contains the path of the file and the other variable contains the file name. My problem is that i want to go about combining these two variables but whenever i try to it returns 0.

Heres how I'm trying to do it:

$var = $folderLocation + $file.

I believe im am trying to combine two strings, but could someone tell me what im doing wrong?


Hahah I figured it out... for anyone looking at this post for help:

Instead of using a + sign you need to use an & sign so the real way to do it would be:

$var = $folderLocation & $file

This will combine the two.
