PHP equivalent of opening a com object

Here is my Perl code:

  my $qbxmlrp_const = Win32::OLE::Const->Load("QBXMLRP2 1.0 Type Library");
  my $request_processor = Win32::OLE->new("QBXMLRP2.RequestProcessor", sub {$_[0]->CloseConnection();}) or die "oops\n";
  $request_processor->OpenConnection2("", $name_reported_to_quickbooks, $qbxmlrp_const->{"localQBD"});
  my $ticket = $request_processor->BeginSession($qb_company_file, $qbxmlrp_const->{"qbFileOpenDoNotCare"});

Open in new window

Is there a PHP equivalent of this?

I don't know if it is equivalent but there is this:

Yes but I don't find the substitute for " my $qbxmlrp_const = Win32::OLE::Const->Load("QBXMLRP2 1.0 Type Library");"

Little confusing, can you give me an example please?

No, I can't, I've never used it.  I just knew it was there.  And a quick Google search does not turn up any working examples.
