Sounds interesting, hopefully all goes well and it'll work with PHP
5.1.1. If it does, then half the battle is done, and I'll be able to
add some real-time features to the forum website I'm building. Just
out of curiosity, is there a website for the module you are working on?
Hi, I'm also looking at PHP support in muscle, and was going to look into the Swig software calling the C API. Right now I'm actually updating the C muscle API with support for query-filters first. (and will send through the code when its running!)

I'm not very familiar with PHP, so I can't really give any good advice on how to write a PHP extension. MUSCLE does have client APIs for Python, Java, C#, and C, however, so if you could use any of those languages instead (or possibly find a way to run code written in those languages from a PHP script... I don't know if that is possible or not) then that might be a solution for you.
Aside from that, the remaining options would be to write a PHP extension that calls the C or C++ code for you, or write your own native PHP code to receive, parse, generate, and send MUSCLE messages. Neither of those two options would be very easy, but if you want to give it a try let me know and I will point you to the relevant MUSCLE documentation.
ps here is a link about calling Java code from PHP: http:// www.phpbuilder.com/manual/ref.java.php
For something I'm going to be experimenting with, I'm going to need to make a PHP extension for PHP5 5.1.1. I have MUSCLEd compiled and running on a FreeBSD server. The problem is that I've not built a PHP extension for any version of PHP4 or PHP5, nor do I work with C++. Guidance and assistance in helping build the MUSCLE client API as a PHP extension is greatly appreciated.
