Shape (shp) Extension for HHVM (HipHop virtual machine)
"The Shapefile C Library provides the ability to write simple C programs for reading, writing and updating (to a limited extent) ESRI Shapefiles"
This extension requires
libshp library installed. On Gentoo it is included
Building & Installation
Installation requires HHVM version 3.2.0 or later. On Gentoo systems with
our overlay you can just
emerge dev-php/hhvm-ext_shape. On other systems:
$ cd /path/to/extension $ ./build.sh
This will produce a
shp.so file, the dynamically-loadable extension.
To enable the extension, you need to have the following section in your HHVM config file (php.ini style config):
hhvm.dynamic_extension_path = /path/to/hhvm/extensions hhvm.dynamic_extensions[shp] = shp.so
/path/to/hhvm/extensions is a folder containing all HipHop extensions,
shp.so is in it. This will cause the extension to be loaded when the
virtual machine starts up.
Differences from PECL
- Added function
shp_get_array_from_objectto convert SHP object properties to PHP array.
shp_create_simple_objectwill fail if not all arguments are passed.
As always, bugs should be reported to the issue tracker and patches are very welcome.
