Ruby PHP Serializer

This module provides two methods: PHP.serialize() and PHP.unserialize(), both of which should be compatible with the similarly named functions in PHP.

Basic usage:

require 'php_serialize'
PHP.serialize({'foo' => 'bar'}) #=> "a:1:{s:3:\"foo\";s:3:\"bar\";}"
PHP.unserialize('a:1:{s:3:"foo";s:3:"bar";}') #=> {"foo"=>"bar"}

PHP.unserialize can also read PHP sessions, which are collections of named serialized objects. These can be reserialized using PHP.serialize_session(), which has the same semantics as PHP.serialize(), but which only supports Hash and associative Arrays for the root object.
