Rating: 0 of 5

Have an old mission-critical C library critical to your business? Maybe you want to make it accessible to a newer crop of developers? Perhaps you simply want to avoid a total re-write into a higher level language?

Maybe you just want your code to be blisteringly fast, and take advantage of the C-level features of the PHP engine.

I'll show you how to make those C functions accessible to your PHP developers, and how you can save time and money by doing so.

This lecture will show you how to start a new PHP extension, start strapping in your C library, and gradually add test cases to keep you sane. You'll see mostly C-code, with very brief glimpses of how it translates to be usable in PHP. [150]
