Unconditional

These NetCloak commands do not depend on anything. PHP can preform similarly.

<HIDE>

NetCloak

The NetCloak <HIDE> command will hide all text that follows until a <SHOW> command is encountered.
NetCloak Example
    <HIDE>This text will never reach the requester. But...
    <SHOW>This text will always reach the requester.

PHP

In PHP, you can HIDE text with the if statement.

PHP Example
    <?php if(false) { ?>This text is hidden.<?php } ?>
    <?php if(true)  { ?>This text is shown. <?php } ?>

<SHOW>

NetCloak

In NetCloak, to make sure text is sent to the requester, the <SHOW> is used. Any text following this command will be displayed.
NetCloak Example
    This text may or may not be displayed based on previous commands.
    <SHOW>
    This text is always displayed.

PHP

PHP uses a command block archetechture. A command block starts with open curly bracket '{' and ends with close curly bracket '}'. If you enter into a command block, all of the commands will be executed in the order they appear. PHP will display all text that is not in a command block. The text will be written in the order it appears. To make sure text is displayed, you must exit all command blocks. But you can't just put in a bunch of '}' because extra curly brackets are grounds for a script error.

PHP Example
    <?php if($whatever) { ?>
    
    This text is displayed based on the variable $whatever.
    
    <?php } ?>
    
    Since the if statement block has closed, this text is
        displayed regardless of $whatever.
