php compiler for net

PHP compiler for .NET: “A couple of years ago, Alan Knowles did some experimenting with getting PHP to run under .NET. He documented his expierences here. Alan managed to put together a working PHP compiler and reached the ‘Hello World’ stage, I believe. Of course there’s a long way to go from Hello World to something that’s actually useful, such as how to implement PHP’s function library. Things that make you think only the insane would want to attempt. Well it turns out a group of Czech programmers were insane enough to do it – meet Phalanger, a PHP compiler for .NET”

(Via Harry Fuecks.) – Interesting. Not ready to base my cross platform plans on it but if it builds into something solid this could be a very good thing for all us PHP guru’s out there.
