Is there a way to call an external C Library in PHP. My company is evaluating converting from Microsoft to Linux and we have some comobjects that are being called from certain pages. I can re-write the objects in C and make them a library but how do I call them from PHP.

Or is there another format that I should write them in.

You can use dl() to load a dynamic library. More information can be found at:

You can also build in your proprietary modules into PHP and compile PHP with them; normally done with C.
