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.

Installing

In your Gemfile:

gem "php-serialize"

Usage

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.

See http://php.net/serialize and http://php.net/unserialize for details on the PHP side of all this.
