Extending and Embedding at Once

Summary

In this chapter you took the simple embedding examples from the last chapter and expanded them to the point where you can handle dropping PHP into most any nonthreaded application. Now that you've got the basics of extending, embedding, and working with zvals, class entries, resources, and hash tables, you're ready to apply that to a real project.

In the remaining appendices, you'll find a catalog of the many API functions exported by PHP, Zend, and other extensions. You'll see a collection of common use code snippets and a directory of just a few of the hundreds of open source PECL projects that will serve as reference for your future projects.
