I'm trying to write a C extension for PHP that would benefit from using the php_unicode_convert_case() function defined in ext/mbstring/php_unicode.h.

However, this header file does not seem to be exported or made available in the Homebrew installation of PHP (see, nor does it seem to be available in any Ubuntu packages (apart from hhvm-dev).

Is there a way to either change the header files installed by this package to include php_unicode.h, or is there some other way I can get multi-byte case conversion functions available to my C extension?

Test script:
#include "ext/mbstring/php_unicode.h"

Expected result:
Running "make" on my extension should build the .so file.

Actual result:
fatal error: 'ext/mbstring/php_unicode.h' file
      not found
#include "ext/mbstring/php_unicode.h"

From that issue

They are not listed in the configure files

➜  mbstring git:(master) ✗ grep PHP_INSTALL_HEADERS *
config.w32:		PHP_INSTALL_HEADERS("ext/mbstring", "mbstring.h oniguruma/oniguruma.h php_mbregex.h php_onig_compat.h");
config.w32:		PHP_INSTALL_HEADERS("ext/mbstring", "mbstring.h oniguruma/oniguruma.h php_mbregex.h php_onig_compat.h libmbfl/config.h libmbfl/mbfl/eaw_table.h libmbfl/mbfl/mbfilter.h libmbfl/mbfl/mbfilter_8bit.h libmbfl/mbfl/mbfilter_pass.h libmbfl/mbfl/mbfilter_wchar.h libmbfl/mbfl/mbfl_allocators.h libmbfl/mbfl/mbfl_consts.h libmbfl/mbfl/mbfl_convert.h libmbfl/mbfl/mbfl_defs.h libmbfl/mbfl/mbfl_encoding.h libmbfl/mbfl/mbfl_filter_output.h libmbfl/mbfl/mbfl_ident.h libmbfl/mbfl/mbfl_language.h libmbfl/mbfl/mbfl_memory_device.h libmbfl/mbfl/mbfl_string.h");
config.w32:		PHP_INSTALL_HEADERS("ext/mbstring", "php_mbregex.h");
so if they are required it seems to be an upstream issue.


So maybe it just needs to be listed.

I suspect you are right, but I don't know enough to say if there are any consequences of doing so. Thus, my bug report. :)
