PHP to something consumable by .net win app (no web server)


I have a php file.  Essentially it takes two posted string inputs, does some transformations, and spits out a string output.  The logical is quite complicated and not something I can rewrite from scratch.

Is there a way to convert the php code into something consumable by a .net app (NO IIS/web server - I just want to convert the code into a method, or a dll - .net or COM, or anything really that allows me to run the logic without having to host anything)

does such a converter exist?

Doesn't this require IIS/Apache?

As I understand, it requires IIS for web applications only. It's not required for class libraries or executables.

PHP programs can be run as command line apps.  I do that with a couple of programs just because it's very easy.  .NET is not just for web apps either.
