Hi,

Is it possible to call functions from a c++ file from PHP? Something like:

<?php
     CallSomeCPPFunction(); // somehow precompiled and usable by PHP directly
?>

No idea how the two could communicate, just wondering if it's possible.

Thanks

Yes you should be able to call this to some extent, using the exec() function of PHP:
http://au3.php.net/function.exec

also alternatively you can use system():
http://au2.php.net/system

basically this executes any command like a commandline does.

Hope this helps.

make it your C++ function a CLI, and call it using system(), exec() to execute the function
