ZeroMQ + libevent in PHP

Well, easy after Mikko Koppanen added a way to get the underlying socket fd from the ZeroMQ PHP extension. To get this working, install the PHP ZeroMQ extension and the PHP libevent extension.

He includes a sample script show the results of his work, a basic server and client that sends a request to the ZeroMQ server and fires off an event using the libevent library (via PHP's extension. You can find out more about using these two libraries in the PHP manual - libevent and ZeroMQ
