How does PHP interpreter work?

P: 17
I decided to ask this question here on after I googled and retrieved nothing from the different search queries I did.

To make my question more clear I'd like to mention here my own understanding of how C compiler works.

C compiler takes a source file (hello.c e.g) and translate/convert it to assembler after making the links and at the end it makes object file which can be executed by the machine.

So taking that in to account, how does the PHP interpreter works?

Thanks in advance

According to my research on the subject.
I think the PHP interpreter takes source and convert to CGI and C.
What do you think about this?
