Perl Extension for PHP

By Deane Barker on April 16, 2004

Using Perl code from PHP: The possibilities here make my head spin. Problem is, I don’t know if it’s spinning in a good way or a bad way.

The PHP Perl extension was implemented to allow the usage of Perl code from within PHP. It is a wrapper that embeds the Perl interpreter and converts data from PHP to Perl and back. At the time of writing it only provides a one-way interface from PHP to Perl…

…load and execute Perl files…evaluate Perl code…access Perl variables…call Perl functions…instantiate Perl objects…access properties of Perl objects…call methods of Perl objects…

I think I’m going to embed Movable Type in a PHP page just for fun. Via Anil Dash.
