Hello?Anyone who would like to write IM extension?

P: n/a
I have an idea. We could write a php IM extension just like PDO.
So, if we turn on
extension = php_im.dll
extension = php_im_gtalk.dll

We could talk to our friends on gtalk by php code something like:

$link = im_gtalk_connect($server, $user, $pass);
// etc...

Certainly if Microsoft support this feature, we could also add
php_im_msn.dll.
Anyone have the power to do that?

I searched over the internet, couldn't find anything about this.

Probably because PHP wouldn't be the best language for this.

PHP is server side. It communicates with the client via HTML, which is
a stateless "pull" protocol - and not at all suited for such features.

You can install and run PHP on a client machine, but its UI is limited,
even with external libraries.

There are languages much better suited for such applications. C/C++ and
Java both come to mind.
