When you compile latest version of Hidef with the PHP v5.6.6, you get an error. Compilation fails.

Expected result:
A successful compilation and generated module

Actual result:
/home/umakant/hidef/src/frozenarray.c: In function ‘frozen_array_unserialize’:
/home/umakant/hidef/src/frozenarray.c:1085:2: warning: pointer targets in passing argument 3 of ‘php_var_unserialize’ differ in signedness [-Wpointer-sign]
/home/umakant/hidef/dependencies/include/php/ext/standard/php_var.h:53:12: note: expected ‘const unsigned char *’ but argument is of type ‘char *’

I do not do any active development on pecl/hidef today.

Since this is a simple missing cast, if you have a patch or pull-request, I can merge it.
 [2015-03-15 14:59 UTC] me at umakantpatil dot com
I fixed that cast. Now getting a different error.

/home/umakant/hidef/src/frozenarray.c:964:6: note: expected ‘const char **’ but argument is of type ‘char **’
/home/umakant/hidef/src/frozenarray.c: In function ‘frozen_array_free_zval_ptr’:
/home/umakant/hidef/src/frozenarray.c:1024:8: error: ‘IS_CONSTANT_ARRAY’ undeclared (first use in this function)

Okay I'll try to get the fix and attach the patch.
 [2015-03-15 15:22 UTC] me at umakantpatil dot com
I have attached the fix. Could you please get into the trunk and release the new version?

The patch would break compilation with former PHP versions,
because IS_CONSTANT_AST is defined as of PHP 5.6.0 only.
 [2015-05-18 04:01 UTC] me at umakantpatil dot com
Okay. I'll correct the patch. 
 [2015-05-18 04:27 UTC] me at umakantpatil dot com
Hi cmb,

According to you the previous patch would not work for versions below 5.6.0.

I have added a new patch which fixes the problem.

The new patch has been tested with versions 5.4.8 and 5.6.6 both.

Let me know if there are any issues. I don't what it would take to post this patch in the truck of hidef. It has been long time since I posted the patch.

Anyway thanks to hear from you on patch.

Somebody with PECL karma would have to do this. If you're
interested in helping to maintain hidef, see

I had applied long back for the account but didn't hear anything from the team. Is there a certain thing other than mentioned in the docs I have to consider while applying which I missed out ?
 [2015-09-15 11:51 UTC] me at umakantpatil dot com
I have fixed this issue at a different repo:-

Just adding if anyone wants it. Since my account was not approved to do commits in the original repo.

Since Gopal is the sole maintainer of the extension, and
apparently hasn't time to fix the issue, I'm suspending this
