PH7 is an in-process software library that implements a highly-efficient embeddable bytecode compiler and a virtual machine for the PHP programming language. It implements most PHP 5.3 constructs, including heredoc, nowdoc, gotos, classes, anonymous functions, and closures, along with powerful extensions such as function overloading, comma expressions, full type hinting, string comparison operators, and more. It is the ideal library for enhancing your application or device (such as router or set-top box) with dynamic Web interfaces, with the benefits and power of PHP and without the overhead incurred by process creation. As an embedded interpreter, it allows multiple interpreter states to coexist in the same program, without any interference between them.
SWIG is a software development tool that connects programs written in C and C++ with a variety of high-level programming languages. SWIG is primarily used with common scripting languages such as Perl, PHP, Python, Tcl/Tk, and Ruby, however the list of supported languages also includes non-scripting languages such as C#, Common Lisp (CLISP, Allegro CL, UFFI), Java, Modula-3, OCAML, Octave, and R. Also several interpreted and compiled Scheme implementations (Guile, MzScheme, Chicken) are supported. SWIG is most commonly used to create high-level interpreted or compiled programming environments, user interfaces, and as a tool for testing and prototyping C/C++ software. SWIG can also export its parse tree in the form of XML and Lisp s-expressions.
Roadsend PHP produces optimized stand alone applications, libraries, and Web applications from standard PHP source code. The compiler produces native machine code, not PHP byte code, so no interpreter is required. It is a new implementation of the PHP language and runtime environment compatible with Zend PHP. It does not share any code with the original PHP implementation.
Metastorage is a PHP data access object generator compiler tool. It implements an object persistence API from a description in an XML format named CPML. The persistent object classes implement object-relational mappings, so developers do not have to write SQL manually. It features an object query language for specifying conditions for querying objects, generation of classes for producing reports, generation of classes to manage templated Web forms for creating new persistent objects, and generation of UML class diagrams. It can be run from the command line or from a Web interface.
MetaL is a meta-programming language that works by generating source code in a target language from a program specification in a higher level language. MetaL programs are based on XML. The compiler engine generates programs in potentially any target language - PHP, Java, and Perl are currently supported.
Eleven is a programming language for creating robust, scalable Web applications quickly and easily. It offers a 20x programmer productivity increase over traditional server programming languages like ASP, PHP, and JSP by automating state management and taking control of the application's look and feel. From high-level source code with a simple, C-like syntax, the compiler generates complete, ready-to-run implementations in PHP or mod_perl. Applications maintain their state in a relational database and are inherently fault-tolerant, secure, and scalable.
PHPCoder is a Web-based frontend to the Turck MMCache encoding functions, which are similar to the Zend Encoder product. PHPCoder enables you to encode your PHP scripts and applications into non-reversible bytecode, thus preventing users of your programs from viewing or altering the source code while having full functionality. Another excellent use for PHPCoder is to encode your applications PHP configuration files, that way someone viewing your source code does not see your databae login and password information. It also allows you to set restrictions on the encoded scripts, you can lock a script to a particular server IP address, server host name, visitor IP, or even place a time limit on the script so it will expire after a configurable amount of time. You specify Text, HTML, or PHP code that should be prepended and appended to each file before it is encoded, allowing you to easily and securely implement your own licensing scheme.
RSP is a retargetable language for writing portable Web applications. Web applications can be written once in RSP and then compiled, using the RSP compiler, to either ASP, JSP or PHP. The RSP language is syntactically similar to Java/JSP. It is strongly typed and pseudo object orientated. Its standard library contains functions and objects for common Web programming tasks and database abstraction.
