Roadsend Compiler for PHP project lets you create royalty free executables for distribution without compromising your source code. Compiling PHP to native machine code produces faster, more efficient products for your own use or for sale to your clients.
The Roadsend Compiler reinvents PHP as a general purpose language suitable for creating GUI applications (with GTK), command line programs, dynamic libraries, and compiled web applications.
The included Roadsend Studio IDE gives you an Integrated Development Environment to build, develop, and debug your projects.
The Roadsend Compiler is available in Personal, Server, Professional, and Enterprise editions to suit the needs of a wide range of developers.
