Using Boris REPL to test your PHP code

Love the Python REPL interface? Wanna do something like that in PHP? Let's try Boris, the missing PHP REPL:

To install boris in Ubuntu (I'm using v14.04), the easiest way is to  clone the git repository:

$ git clone git://
$ cd boris
$ sudo ln -s /path/to/boris/bin/boris /usr/local/bin/boris

Now you can test-drive your PHP code in command line without writing all the code at one.
