Todays special guest is Elizabeth Marie Smith. I quote now from her “About Me” page of her blog, a link to which can be found in the show notes. Elizabeth has been using PHP since time immemorial but has used PHP 5 for so long now she’s forgotten how she ever got by without SPL and a real object model. She is a certifiable geek, if it can be compiled on windows, she’ll compile it, if not…she’ll fix it so it does. She enjoys doing very perverse things to Windows using PHP as well – all this in between caring for her 4 kids and husband.

Today Elizabeth is going to share with us about PECL, the PHP Extension Community Library.
