PHP North West Sessions:
Robert Mortimer's "Let Your Toolchain Set You Free"
December 20, 2010 @ 15:11:43

On the PHP North West site today there's a new video posted of a session at the PHP North West 2010 conference - Robert Mortimer's talk "Let your toolchain set you free".

A quick romp though installing a full php development tool chain. Starting at A for Apache and ending at X for X-debug including U for unit testing and S for source control.

You can watch the video and check out the source he uses in the talk. For more great sessions, check out the latest news on the PHPNW site.

Elizabeth Smith's Blog:
Compiling PHP5.2 on Windows with .Net toolchain - is it even possible?
November 10, 2006 @ 07:03:58

Elizabeth Smith has had an adventure - one where she's tried to get something (seemingly) simple to work on a less than simple platform. She tried to compile PHP 5.2 on Windows with a .Net toolkit. This is her story:

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. [...] I'm always up for learning something new and I thought I had enough google skills and entry level knowledge to get things going. Alas, it has all failed.

She recounts the steps she followed in her effort to get the setup working, including setting up the compile environment (no small task thanks to dependencies for Visual C++ Express Edition) and getting down into the PHP. This causes troubles of its own - from command line options not getting passed to external library dependencies - with the ultimate unfortunate result.

All the way to the end and the linker fails AGAIN. What the heck? So I start doing some searching...turned off EVERYTHING and tried to build and ended up with weird iconv and libxml errors - even with disable-all.

nothing works.
