php-pecl-qb - Accelerator designed mainly for graphic work

Remi Collet
QB stands for "Quick Binary".

It's a PHP extension designed to enable faster handling of binary data.
It takes a function written in PHP and translate it for a specialized
virtual machine. The use of static type information leads significantly
higher performance than under PHP's regular dynamic type system.
A PHP+QB function can run anywhere from five to twenty times faster
than regular PHP code. For even higher level of performance, one can compile
PHP+QB functions to native code (on supported platforms).

QB performs code translation on a per-function basis. It does not affect
in anyway code not specially marked. Interaction between PHP+QB functions
and regular PHP code is basically seamless. A key design objective of QB
is to let developers harness greater processing power than what baseline
PHP offers without the risk involved in adopting a brand new platform.
