I’ve been writ­ing things in PHP for the past 8 weeks that it isn’t really meant for or to do. To whit:
  • dae­mon­ised processes;
  • shared memory based meth­ods and usage (mainly around SysV sem­a­phores and segments);
  • cron exten­sions and handlers;
  • net­work con­nec­tions via SNMP and SNPP; and
  • lots of file sys­tem meth­ods (glob­bing, file man­age­ment and organisation),
I really do feel dirty.
