JSLabs Blog:
5 cool things you can do with Windows and PHP
June 05, 2007 @ 09:22:00

On the JSLabs website, Justin Silverton has posted five cool things that you can do with PHP in a Windows environment:

Many PHP examples out there are designed for a linux/unix operating system. I am going to give some examples of some interesting functionality that only works with php running in a windows environment (IIS or apache).

Here's the list:

  • Eject the CD-ROM
  • Read and write from/to the registry
  • Register and un-register phpscripts as a windows service
  • Print pages/data
  • List the current system processes

Each item has sample code and a simple explanation to get you started using it.
