How to track it

How to get it

You can get the current development code (trunk) with anonymous access from svn using this command:

// anonymous login
svn co php.cmake
// <username> login
svn co --username <username> php.cmake

Note: If you want to add some patches you can send it or request an account to

How to test it

Currently we support php-src/trunk source code, added as a svn external property.unk/cmake/) to your php checkouted copy.

I suggest you that use an out-the-source compiling strategy. Move to another directory and execute cmake <php_source_dir> after that you'll have a Makefile file (in make platforms), execute make (or load the project file generated)

You can use too the script (i.e. ./build_src <php_source_dir>)

Linux and MacOS X

  • Copy ./cmake dir to src/php5 and cmake'it to ./build directory and make'it
dendrita:php.cmake/trunk $ ./ src/php5/
