Question - Installing readline module in PHP

Posted 02 September 2012 - 11:31 AM

Hi D.I.Coders,

I've been looking into using PHP's interactive mode from a CLI perspective, but I need the readline module installed before it can work. (Shown by not being included in php -m).

I'm using Windows 7 and XAMPP to host a local server. Where do I go from here?

Here's a relevant snippet from the XAMPP readme:

###### ApacheFriends XAMPP (Basispaket) version 1.7.4 ######

+ Apache 2.2.17
+ PHP 5.3.5 (VC6 X86 32bit) + PEAR


Essentially, I am looking for a step-by-step guide. PHP's documentation and GNU readline tell me absolutely nothing. (Well, they explain little and in a level of language far beyond my ability to comprehend).

Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

Bladescope

Ah, well now I'm looking rather silly now aren't I?

Thanks for the help anyway!
