Compile that - and you can run it on any system that is binary compatible, whether or not is has a C compiler.

However, it will not run on systems that are not binary compatible, even if they have a C compiler.

print ("Hello World");

That will only run on systems with a php interpreter, even if you "compile" it into byte-code.

However, unlike the c example, it will run on any system with a php interpreter.

Nothing fuzzy about it.
