Microsoft .net to get PHP support

Posted on Saturday, Aug 12 2006 @ 09:09 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Microsoft will release a PHP compiler for the .Net framework, enabling full functionality of existing PHP scripts on .NET without any modification.
Unlike the original PHP interpreter, Phalanger compiles scripts into MSIL (Microsoft Intermediate Language).

Phalanger offers Web application developers the ability to leverage both the ease-of-use and effectiveness of the PHP language and the power and richness of the .Net platform, the company said.

And the compiler developers can deploy and run existing PHP code on an ASP.Net Web server and develop cross-platform extensions to that code.

Meanwhile, the object model in Phalanger is compatible with PHP 5.0, and it lets developers combine PHP objects with .Net ones.
