PHP has established itself as a powerful, easy-to-program solution for web application development. Its popularity has generated the demand to extend beyond the realm of web applications and into the realm of a general purpose compiled language suitable for stand alone applications.
The Roadsend Compiler offers a new, commercially supported implementation of the PHP language. It retains the powerful features that long-time PHP developers are used to, while offering significant advantages over the open source implementation to now make PHP a truly viable alternative to other compiled languages.
With the Roadsend Compiler, developers can create native stand alone applications, libraries and web applications that require no interpreter. Because the Roadsend Compiler is compatible with open source PHP 4.3.7, existing code may be used in compiled products.
The Roadsend Compiler is currently available on all popular Linux platforms, with a Windows version available soon. In addition, a GUI extension based on the popular GTK toolkit is under development. The Roadsend Compiler intends to offer true cross-platform, stand alone GUI applications that take advantage of the power and ease of use of the PHP language.
