A simple helper to assist with writing MCollective actions in PHP.

Given an action as below:

action "echo" do
   validate :message, String

   implemented_by "/tmp/echo.php"

The following PHP script will implement the echo action externally replying with message and timestamp


    $mc = new MCollectiveAction();
    $mc->message = $mc->data["message"];
    $mc->timestamp = strftime("%c");
    $mc->info("some text to info log on the server");

Calling it with mco rpc results in:

$ mco rpc test echo message="hello world"

    {:message=>"hello world", :time=>"Tue Mar 15 19:20:53 +0000 2011"}
