I am unable to load the php_gettext.dll extension that ships with 5.0.0b4.  When I attempt to load this extension while using the PHP ISAPI filter I get the following popup message on the server:

Warning : PHP Startup: Invalid library (maybe not a PHP library) 'php_gettext.dll' 

What do I need to do in order to get the gettext library to work in 5.0.0b4?  I had this working in PHP 4.3.x without issue so I'm just curious if in the gettext library in 5.0.0b4 is broken...

Reproduce code:
Add php_gettext.dll to the extensions in your php.ini file.

Expected result:
The gettext library should load without issue.

Actual result:
Gettext.dll library will not load.

I've discovered the source of the issue.  php_gettext.dll is broken in 5.0.0b4.  It does not export the base DLL entry point "get_module" as required for PHP -- so it will not load.

Please correct this error in php_gettext.dll.

Apparently the new build system for Windows broke this since it works when compiled with the old one. Assigned to Wez who broke it.. :)

With the 2/18 CVS build it looks like the php_gettext.dll library attempts to load now.  However it depends on ICONV.DLL which is not being included with the 2/18 CVS Win32 distribution.  I found a copy of the library at the URL listed below, but the PHP documentation says that the library is included with the Win32 distribution of PHP (and it has been included in prior 4.3.x releases of PHP).

Making the ICONV.DLL library available now allows the php_gettext.dll extension to load.  Thanks!

reported problem fixed. (missing iconv is other issue)

Dependancy on ICONV.DLL has been removed (iconv is bundled with php5)
