CLI and Windows

Threaded View
The portion of the PHP manual entitled "Using PHP from the command
states that "The CGI SAPI supports the CLI SAPI behaviour by means of
the -C switch when run from the command line.":

However, "php -h" says of the -C switch, "Do not chdir to the script's

Further, running php -Cr "echo 'test';" results in an error saying
the -r switch doesn't exist, even though it should if it were acting
like the CLI version.

This, coupled with the fact that the Windows installer doesn't seem to
install a seperate CLI exe means that, unless I'm missing something,
CLI isn't something that can be used on Windows, contrary to what the
docs say.

Am I missing something?

I use the CLI under Windows all the time.  In <5 it was under it's own
folder called something like CLI, and with 5 php.exe is the CLI.
