The Roadsend Compiler for PHP lets you create royalty free executables for distribution without compromising your source code. Compiling PHP to native machine code produces faster, more efficient products for your own use or for sale to your clients. The Roadsend Compiler reinvents PHP as a general purpose language suitable for creating GUI applications (with GTK), command line programs, dynamic libraries, and compiled web applications.

Roadsend Compiler is available in Enterprise, Professional, Server, and Personal editions and supported on Windows, Linux, and FreeBSD. Pricing starts at just $129.
