Developing Custom PHP Extensions: Part 1 - Conclusion
(Page 5 of 5 )

Although we haven’t created an extension just yet, we’ve laid the necessary foundation to do so in the next article. You now have an understanding about extensions in PHP, the different kinds of extensions that we can create, and most importantly, you have the development environment set.

In the next article I will assume the development environment is set, and we will begin working on our extension. Some of the topics that will be covered are:
  • Passing variables to functions
  • Returning values from functions
  • Memory allocation and management
  • Zend engine macros
