           Summary: [Chameleon] New "php_chameleon.dll" extension
           Product: Chameleon
           Version: 1.99
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: PHP-Ext
        AssignedTo: chameleon-dev at lists.maptools.org
        ReportedBy: dmorissette at dmsolutions.ca

Bug 177 raised a security issue related to the use of the 'wmsparse' external
program on IIS servers. After further discussion of this specific issue and of
the alternatives, it was decided to create a new "php_chameleon.dll" PHP DL
extension to provide the 'wmsparse' services, and eventually provide any other
low-level service that Chameleon may require.

If anyone has a better name than "php_chameleon" for the extension then please
speak up now.


- Created a new "PHP-Ext" component in bugzilla for this extension. (done)

- Create new PHP extension, see README.EXT_SKEL in PHP source package

- Extension will live in a new "php_chameleon" CVS project on maptools

- The current wmsparse should continue to be available and supported. wmsparse.c
will need to be split in two files: the main() and the utility functions. The
PHP extension will simply be a wrapper on top of those functions.

- Update the Chameleon code that currently calls wmsparse to first check and use
the module if it is available.

Julien is going to work on this later this week.
