Summary:
Use movzbl for and-with-255 when the flags aren't needed.
Use andl/testl rather than andq/testq for unsigned 32bit immediates
Use testbim rather than testwim/testlim/testqim when the non-zero bits of the mask fit into a single byte.
Optimize andq 0xffffffff where the flags aren't used to a movzlq
Optimize ##testl/testq -1, reg## to ##testl/testq reg,reg##

HHVM is an open-source virtual machine designed for executing programs written in Hack and PHP. HHVM uses a just-in-time (JIT) compilation approach to achieve superior performance while maintaining the development flexibility that PHP provides.

HHVM supports Hack, PHP 5 and the major features of PHP 7. We are aware of minor incompatibilities, so please open issues when you find them. HHVM also supports many extensions as well.

HHVM should be used together with a webserver like the built in, easy to deploy Proxygen, or a FastCGI-based webserver on top of nginx or Apache.

Installing

If you're new, try our getting started guide.

You can install a prebuilt package or compile from source.

Running

You can run standalone programs just by passing them to hhvm: hhvm my_script.php.

If you want to host a website:

  • Install your favorite webserver. Proxygen is built in to HHVM, fast and easy to deploy.
  • Install our package
  • Start your webserver
  • Run sudo /etc/init.d/hhvm start
  • Visit your site at http://.../index.php

Our getting started guide provides a slightly more detailed introduction as well as links to more information.
