PHP/JavaScript interpreter

The PHP JavaScript interpreter is intended to be embedded into CMS/Wiki engines to allow users to inject server-side executable code as Web site extensions. This is possible because scripts run safely in a sandbox, while interfaces to the hosting interpreters environment and resources were still allowed. The language looks like a mix of PHP and EcmaScript, but does not reach for completeness. It also runs magnitudes slower than a real interpreter.
