What does a question mark (?) stands for in ancho tag ?

What does a question mark (?) stands for in ancho tag ?

(OP)
Hi everyone,
I bumped into code regarding anchore tag:
<a href="index.php?del_task=<?php echo $row['id'] ?>">x</a>
What does the "?" stand for?
Thanks

RE: What does a question mark (?) stands for in ancho tag ?

The question mark indicates the beginning of the list of parameters, name - value pairs, being passed to the linked page. It does not stand for anything, its just an indicator, so that the server getting the request knows there's parameters being sent to the page.

Then the page can make use of those values being sent.

In your example index.php will be receiving a parameter or variable named "del_task" that has a value of whatever $row{'id'} is when that code is being parsed by the PHP interpreter.
