WHAT IT IS
It's a tool for automatically creating the basic framework for a PHP extension.
HOW TO USE IT
Very simple. First, change to the ext/ directory of the PHP sources. Then
run the following
php ext_skel.php --ext extension_name
and everything you need will be placed in directory ext/extension_name.
If you don't need to test the existence of any external header files,
libraries or functions in them, the extension is ready to be compiled in
PHP. To compile the extension, run the following:
./buildconf; ./configure --enable-extension_name; make
The definition of PHP_extension_NAME_VERSION will be present in the
php_extension_name.h and injected into the zend_extension_entry definition. This
is required by the PECL website for the version string conformity checks
against package.xml
SOURCE AND HEADER FILE NAME
The ext_skel.php script generates 'extension_name.c' and 'php_extension_name.h'
as the main source and header files. Keep these names.
extension functions (User functions) must be named
extension_name_function()
When you need to expose extension functions to other extensions, expose functions
strictly needed by others. Exposed internal function must be named
php_extension_name_function()

OTHER OPTIONS
Run php ext_skel.php --help to see the available options.
