 +The globals constructor and destructor are NOT execute per-request,​ they are part of the module startup/​shutdown. The globals can store data across requests. If you need to do per-request operations to the globals, use module-activate and module-deactivate callbacks.
  
 Note: ZEND_MODULE_GLOBALS_CTOR_D will declare a function as receiving a zend_extname_globals*,​ not void* and zend_module_entry is supposed to contain a function pointer type that receives void*. I think this violates the C standard (the declarations are incompatible),​ but should however by safe since the arguments have the same size. Note: ZEND_MODULE_GLOBALS_CTOR_D will declare a function as receiving a zend_extname_globals*,​ not void* and zend_module_entry is supposed to contain a function pointer type that receives void*.
