A interactive PHP Shell

PHP version 5

The more I work with other languages like python and ruby I like their way how they work on problems. While PHP is very forgiving on errors, it is weak on the debugging side. It was missing a simple to use interactive shell for years. Python and Ruby have their ipython and iruby shell which give you a direct way to interact with the objects. No need to write a script and execute it afterwards.

Starting the Shell:

The package contains a shell wrapper for windows and unix:

 win> php-shell

Both are calling the wrapper script

  1. php -q php-shell-cmd.php
