What does "language module PHP" actually do?

I checked the language module PHP in my desktop app,
but no PHP code works. I have noticed several other postings from frustrated people wondering how to make PHP work.

What does checking "language module PHP" actually do?

How do you run PHP code in a desktop app?

  • Checking the PHP module allows you to use PHP code in your application. You can either code it inline (not preprocessed):

    <script type="text/php">
    $foo = 'bar';

    Or include pre processed scripts:

    <script type="text/php" src="path/to/file.php">


    <script type="text/php">

    More information can be found on the Programming Guides

    • On Mac snow leopard, using Appcelerator 1.2.1
      The first works:

      <script type="text/php">
      $foo = 'bar';

      Other two do not.

      I might be mistaken, yet a simple statement such as:

      echo("hellow world");

      does not work. So indeed, what's the PHP language module all about?
