Hi Ray,

Does this issue coincide with an upgrade to PHP 5.4, and if so, which
version of PHP were you running before?

You could try to email the maintainer listed, Uwe Steinmann <
u...@steinmann.cx> or <ste...@php.net>, but it looks like it's been a while
since anyone has touched that code.

If this is because of backwards incompatible changes in PHP (e.g.,
http://php.net/manual/en/migration53.incompatible.php), you could try to
avoid the PHP bindings Uwe developed and merely use PHP to call a C program
that directly deals with his project pslib:
