As expected, there were some bugs with the first release of phc-win. The biggest problem occured whenever the path of the program file or any code contained a space: it simply wouldn’t compile the code. That has been fixed in this version. Some other minor bug fixes as well. PHC-WIN is compatible with PHP 5.0.5

PHC-WIN is a windows application that allows one to create EXEs from PHP code. The PHP code is first converted to PHP bytecode using bcompiler, and then embedded into an EXE using embeder. Compiling the code into bytecode has two benefits: it speeds up load times since the PHP code doesn’t have to be interpreted, and it obfuscates the code so that it cannot be easily reverse engineered.
