You may be looking for glade http://glade.gnome.org/ It's in MacPorts as glade and glade3 port search whatever like port search glade man port and check out "variants" I don't recall if Glade has debugging. Remember PHP is a scripting language. You don't compile. But I have seen something that compiles PHP to a stand alone app google says this today for "compile php stand alone" http://www.devx.com/opensource/Article/21235 > In both cases they are very verbose about command line stuff, but short on > how to use php to create an application. I just don't see it. Maybe my > terminology is not correct. My applications stand by themselves and run when > clicked -- no command line is needed. http://glade.gnome.org/manual/index.html It's been a while since I toyed with this. Google "glade tutorial" http://www.micahcarrick.com/12-24-2007/gtk-glade-tutorial-part-1.html I would think there is a way to create a YourApp.app bundle for Mac and have it run when clicked. I just saw something about creating your own YourApp.app bundle the other day. It was not about PHP, but I'm sure it could be done. It was something to do with a tool that...ahh it was about the open source iPhone tool chain. It did not create a TheApp.app bundle but showed how to do so manually. I would think that you would do something with #!/usr/bin/php -q More like #!/opt/local/bin/php for MacPorts and make some part of the bundle point to the executable PHP script.
