PHP is no longer just a great scripting language for websites, it's now a powerful general-purpose programming language. Expand your use of PHP into your back-end systems, server software, data processing services, desktop interfaces and more.

This book will show you how to take your knowledge of PHP development for the web and utilise it with a much wider range of software systems. Learn how to create :

    Interactive shell scripts
    System daemons
    Desktop software
    Network servers

and more. We also cover related topics including :

    System interaction

as well as covering software tools for development and outlining other great sources of technical information and help.
Enjoy the benefits of doing this in PHP :

    Save money by redeploying existing skills, not learning new ones
    Save time and increase productivity by using a high-level language
    Make money by providing your clients a full-stack service (not just web sites)

This book will introduce you to the tools, techniques and background necessary to program just about anything you can think of, using the PHP you already know.
