PHP Shell Gets Even Better
Jun 15, 2006 @ 05:48:33

Today on PHPKitchen, there's some new comments concerning even more improvements to the PHP Shell package to provide more powerful shell access to developers on the command line.

Luckily for PHPers Jan Kneschke has come to the rescue and implemented PHP Shell in userland PHP, which provides many of the features that come by default in the aforementioned languages' interactive shells. If your PHP is compiled --with-readline support even better, standard up-arrow command history is available, as is the ability to backspace into the code you have written but not yet executed.

Demian also includes another note mentioning an addition PHP Shell's distribution method - it's been made available via PEAR and can be grabbed with "pear install PHP_Shell" from the command line.

Feb 06, 2006 @ 07:10:50

Builder.com.au has this new article posted today with a good guide for working with the command-line version of PHP.

PHP is most often used in combination with a Web server, to dynamically generate Web site pages. However, this Web server interface isn't the only way to use PHP, because the PHP distribution also includes a command-line interface which can be used to run PHP programs at the command prompt, much like Perl or bash.

This document will introduce you to PHP's command-line interface (CLI), showing you how to interact with PHP programs at the command prompt.

They start off with basics, things like making it executable and creation of a simple program. They then move into taking in arguments on the command line and some of the options you can pass in too. Lastly, they demonstrate the interactive mode that the PHP CLI has to allow you to interpret PHP code on the fly...
