CodeGear released this week Delphi 4 PHP. Read the press release.
Today I found out that the documentation of the Open Source class library, which Delphi uses, VCL for PHP is available on SourceForge. You can find it here.
A quick scan shows that this is VCL as we know it!
Object, Persistent, Control they are all there!
Can not be to difficult to learn PHP this way, can it?
There is also a one day (One day?) trial available for download here.
