The native windows binding for php

What is it?

WinBinder is an open source extension for PHP, the script programming language. It allows PHP programmers to easily build native Windows applications. Click here for more information.


Some key benefits

  • A small set of WinBinder functions encapsulates many complex aspects of the Windows API and makes programming for Windows an easy task.
  • No compiling and linking steps necessary: just code and run.
  • Interfaces directly to the Window API. This means fast execution, no extra libraries and no installation required.
  • Access to the vast range of existing PHP functions and extensions, including databases, graphics, web functions, XML, PDF, and much more.
