Communicating with threads in PHP
May 03, 2007 @ 13:38:16

Continuing on from a previous post on multi-threading in PHP, Brian Bosh is back with something a bit more developed that will allow for communication between the threads as well.

Earlier this week, I suggested PHP could be multithreaded. The sample I provided was very simple and at least one reader quickly wondered how to communicate with threads. If you haven't already, take a look at part 1 to get some basic information about threads in PHP.

It took a bit longer to get that part working that simple threads, but as of now, I have a functional prototype of an HVAC thread.

The post is broken up into five different files to make things work:

  • an overall class for the main functionality (their example of running the heater or AC)
  • a class to create and set up a thread
  • a "thready utility" class to handle the response from a thread
  • a thread library to handle creation/interaction/etc
  • the example file of the system in use
Following the code, he gives a nice explanation of how things work and how they all fit together.
