The iconv extension doesnt compile due to our very strict NetWare compiler (CodeWarrior) and some other types with the netWare buildin iconv implementation;
therefore we need some casts:

Anantha, could you plz look into this?

Hi Tony,
unfortunately AFAIK Anantha left Novell at 15. Sep. 2006 already. Currently I'm the only one supporting PHP on NetWare.
Anyway - even if there would one care about PHP - the Novell folks didnt care about building extensions at all; they have all the time delivered only 5 Modules where I do with my builds more than 70. Even those extensions they build (after I bothered them!) are pretty much useless as f.e. a GD extension without JPEG and TTF support. SO believe me: I'm the one who supported Novell PHP all the time; the only helpful man at Novell was Kamesh Jayachandran - but unfortunately he also left Novell already end of 2005.
Please take a look at my site:
there you see who does the real support for NetWare PHP.
In addition I work close together with the NetWare Core developers, and have already changed a lot of uglyness with our NetWare Platform SDK. Also I would like to remove a bunch of ugly Netware ifdefs which are nowaday not needed anymore.
Last not least Novell has even Bug reports from their customers about huge memory leaks with PHP 5.0.5 since last September - but nevertheless they dont care, and delivered still 5.0.5 with their latest Support Pack.
I would love to join the PHP community now in order to receive commit rights so that I dont need to bother you folks here - please advise me what I have to do for that, which mailing list I need to join etc.
Currently nearly all folks on Novell NetWare use my PHP 5.2.0 builds which work a lot better than Novell's 5.0.5, and the memory leak is mostly gone. Also this is the first version where I got the memory_limit functions working.
Last not least I have done the whole customer support of NetWare PHP in the Novell forums in the past 7 years since I was a Developer SysOp with contract with Novell - but they have closed all developer forums now, or at least set them read-only:

thanks, Guenter.

I an an ISP and can only confirm that Guenter's builds are the only really usable - without his effort PHP on NetWare would be unusable for me.
