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.
Anchor automatically adds curly braces and semicolons to code written in various programming languages, saving typing and making programs easier to read. It lets you pretend to be coding in Python or Lua while actually writing standard C, Java, PHP, C++, .NET, C#, or D. A script may generate files in the target language and invoke the compiler. An example bash script integrates with TCC to make runnable "scripts" with the speed of C. The scripts are easily modified to target another compiler or interpreter.
