Compiling PHP5.2 on Windows with .Net toolchain - is it even possible?

For three days I fought with compiling PHP5.2 on windows. The point was to be able to compile PHP-GTK2 a little more often (there are at least two bugfixes in CVS that I need for my writer project) and asking on the list/irc for compiled versions got me some smartass answer about "learn to do it …

Writer is shaping up

I had a good portion of writer done before I realized I was copying the same things over and over again - so I took a breath and refactored so I had a parent abstract window class for all those identical windows.  And moved to using GtkActions (by the way - actions make life a LOT …

Php Women

I was on ##php at freenode (I try to be a good php community citizen and help out occasionally, usually for php5 questions even though irc in general tends to attract the not so pleasant aspects of the community) and noticed a little "Girls only need apply" in the topic. So curious that I checked out …

Amusing quotes...

There was a little spat on the php.internals mailing list over the future of dl.  The docs have been updated to say that dl will still exist for cgi and cli in php6.

I didn't set out to be a documentor...

So I've been doing a "daily doc" for php-gtk2. I was on IRC one night and christian weiske was whining about wanting people to help with documentation. Now, I'd never done anything with docbook before (and php/php-gtk's bastardized docbook is even more "fun" than the original) and I was afraid.

Finally! File Upload Progress for php (5.2)

A happy thing landed on the pecl mailing list today - an Upload Progress Meter

Introducing (Callicore) Writer

It's been a month since I've written, more actually. And I have been busy. I like to be organized. I think it has something to do with the fact that my brain is, well, mush most of the time. I have four kids, two cats, and a husband to keep track of, plus all the household …

Windows sucks... but we already knew that

So I've been working on some command line tools and wanted to add some color to the text (red for fail, green for pass... Testing ya know?) Now most console tools allow you to use something called ansi escape codes. The right code and, voila, red text on a white background. This is a pretty basic …

I guess I'm just ahead of the times...

When perusing php-planet today (or is it planet-php and why can't I ever remember?) I ran across an interesting article about changing from zend studio to komodo.

Ask and ye shall receive - zipped pecl4win!

Well now, remember how I said that I loved Edin? I reiterate that statement. Look what he did yesterday. Wahoo, now if they'd just fix the branch link on the snaps.php.net page all my grumping would be finished... (why is it pointing to 5.1 instead of 5.2 when the snaps are all 5.2?) Actually, this is …

Just can't stay away

Html_Ajax now has a fully functional xml serializer. I spent the day writing an example and messing with the few javascript items that needed to be fixed. I'm still hitting a strange bug with Internet Explorer (of course) that makes me scratch my head, but for the most part it's working great.

Why I love open source

I go to bed after cheering the fact that 5.2 pecl dll's are being compiled and with a complaint that two I use all the time failed...

Finally.... Pecl4Win with php5.2

I love edin - no really I do. He's so good to us (admittedly nutty) php on windows users. Snaps of php are something I use all the time - heck for a long while the php 5.1 snaps were more stable then the official 5.0 releases (that was a weird time). And then they came …

Annoying statics in php

I had never thought too much about how php handles static methods and properties in classes until I started fiddling with my activerecord again today. I had run into problems before but after less than satisfactory responses from the people writing people (you aren't doing OO right, no other language does this, it has to be …

IframeXHR

Once again I've been working my tail off on HTML AJAX and it's time for a new release. I'm not doing this out of any altruism - I just want a nicely debugged working ajax solution that I can hack into kalfu properly. The biggest project this time around has been IframeXHR (xmlhttprequest) - a javascript …

Way too much HTML_AJAX and stupid Opera

I've been doing a LOT of work on the pear HTML_AJAX project. I'm usually not a big fan of pear but it's nice not to have to write everything. For the last release I tried to pin down a serializer that provides an api similiar to xajax and others - the "write no javascript - I …

Webservers on Windows - Apache, Mysql and Php Installation

WAMP installation for dummies
Introduction
After yet another post on php.windows mailing list by users on "how do make mysql work" and viewing some (often incorrect) installation instructions I've decided to do a "Windows Installation for Dummies" for people who seem to have trouble with WAMP (Windows, Apache, Mysql, Php) installs. I'll also include some supplementary information …

Php Internals Summary - June 10th to 20th

Yes yes, I know, this is late - but monday to monday seems to be a more sane schedule for these...

Php Internals Summary - June 5-9th

I was reading slashdot (yes I was REALLY bored) and came across this article explaining how php is turning ten. Then I read down into the comments (really bored, remember?) and was absolutely surprised to see that the general public has no way of keeping up with what's going on in PHP development.

"Clean" urls with php

So... everybody talks about how they want "clean" urls - in other words use pathinfo instead of query strings and leave off the extensions (.gif|.png|.php|.html et al) These are all methods that assume you're aware of how to mangle pathinfo to get the information you want, they don't rewrite urls into query strings (although that's the …

Ajax summit for the few, the proud...the invited

Ajaxian is probably the stupidest name ever - course I think ajax is a stupid name soo... these geeks and their obsession with cleanliness...ajax, soap...

OO purists in php vs. functional purists in php

UGH...

Subversion php binding stuff on a roll

I love alan and wez - no I mean it.

Phar - php's jar

Although the performance isn't perfect yet phar is alive - personally I'd like to see this implemented right in php instead of as a pear class...but that's just me.

Finally, subversion bindings for php

Someone is finally working on some svn bindings for php - I love you Alan.
