Re: [wp-hackers] Just a thought: Compiled WordPress

OK... maybe I'm lost.

First, thanks for the reply Roy.. But I'm not seeing these issues.

I thought "compiled PHP" means that you take the PHP files, put them through
Phalanger/RoadSend, and then serve the compiled code instead.
No one "makes these files available," rather every time I make a change to
my site, add a plugin, modify a line of code or else update from SVN - I
recompile it via the program.

I think it's on-the-fly compilation, i.e. they serve the PHP files instead
of the PHP CGI/SAPI extension....

"On-the-fly compilation" stands out as an oxymoron. *smile*

<heavily snipped>
I was wrongly assuming that you want this option to reach people who are not Computer Gurus.

Best wishes,

Oxymoronic or not, "On-the-fly compilation" could be discussed.
There is in a way such things as "compile time compilation" and "run time compilation".

For example Java Server Pages are compiled into Java Servlets the first time you request the page.
This is maybe not really "run time", as the developer is the one to test the JSP first.

Java source code is compiled at "compile time" into the binary class record format.
The Java run time engine however, will compile the classes into machine code for the host machine at run time,
i.e. on-the-fly. If it is lazy ( aka effective ) it will only compile code as needed, bottlenecks first.
The compiled code will be cached in memory only and last for the current session.

Just couldn't resist ;)
