Python in PHP
Copyright © 2002-2012 Jon Parise

The Python extension has the following system requirements:
- PHP version 5.2.0 or later
- PEAR installer version 1.4.3 or later
The easiest way to install the Perforce extension is by using the PECL installer::
pecl install python
If you're building from source code, should use the
configuration option. If your copy of the Python hasn't been installed in one
of the default locations, you can specify it as a parameter::
This package's source code is hosted on GitHub:
A number of unit tests are included to help maintain correct and expected
behavior. The tests can be run using PECL tool's
pecl run-tests -p python
Additional unit test contributions are welcome, especially when they increase code coverage or exercise specific use cases.
python.optimize INI setting controls the Python interpreter's runtime
optimization level. This is a global, system-wide setting and therefore can
only be set in the PHP.ini file.
When set to 0 (the default), no additional optimizations are enabled, and
__debug__ flag is True.
When set to 1 (equivalent to Python's
-O command line option), the
Python interpreter will generate optimized bytecode, and the built-in
__debug__ flag is set to False.
When set to 2 (equivalent to Python's
-OO command line option), the
Python doc-strings will be removed in addition to the above optimizations.
