I originally wanted to continue my post on the linguistics of programming
today, but I was simply unwilling to publish what I have so far as it will require much more research to be of any significance.
So instead I'll share an easy way to play around with PHP5.3 if you're on a Mac. First of all install MacPorts (don't forget to install XCode before). Then run:
sudo port install php5-devel +apache2 +mysql5 +pear
To verify it worked run:
You should see:
PHP 5.3.0alpha1 (cli) (built: Sep 16 2008 16:03:17) Copyright (c) 1997-2008 The PHP Group Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2008 Zend Technologies

Have fun with the new PHP : ).
