Compile php script, how?

Is the there any way to compile a php script ?
I wrote some code and I want to make it a executable binary but by now I can’t find the way :frowning:

A search on “php compiler” turned up something called Roadsend. It’s GPL even. I learnt something today. Let us know how you go.

PHP can’t normally be compiled afaik. Is there a reason you want to do
this? Zend (the company that creates the PHP engine) I think may have
some ways to optimize code so it is faster but I’m not familiar with
them (haven’t looked into it for a few years) but check out www.zend.com
for whatever they may have.

Good luck.

Thank you!
I’ll take a look right now.

also you can use LAMP server to have php, apache and mysql!

it’s in suse dvd and you can install it from install or remove software packages!

AFAIK you can’t convert PHP-Code to binary code. ZEND IMO only provides encryption / optimization tools but no true PHP to Binary compiler!

Apparently you’re right.

I did try with roadsend compiler but doesn’t work for complex scripting using remote database access (db2 with ibm_db2 module).

I’m pretty disappointed, I’ll find another way out.

uhm no php scripts is/are not compiled, its an interpreted language.

We are not discussing about the nature of php as a language.
We’re trying to make binaries from php scripts, something like perlcc for perl.

You can use PHP with Command Line Interface.
