See
http://php.net/manual/en/function.exec.php

You need to give exec() a variable to store the output of the command.
After exec(), you can then print this variable using standard PhP echo/print functions.

The passthru() function automatically prints the output of the command.
http://php.net/manual/en/function.passthru.php

http://php.net/manual/en/ref.exec.php
contains a bunch of links to PhP commands regarding execution of programs that are external to PhP
(ie via the shell).

In short, if you're working on PhP, http://php.net is a great reference.

I quickly looked it up on php.net.
The command is called "print" and supports arrays (ie multiline output).

For examples, open up
http://php.net in a browser and type
print
in the search box (top right on the page).
It'll take you directly to the "print" command syntax.
