…Running Facebook's HipHopVM ( hhvm) JIT Compiler for PHP by Yermo Lamers.
Yermo selected PHP to implement a number of content web sites. He took an interesting approach, he created a forms, views, validation, and business logic description language to remove the drudgery of creating the same code over and over again for each page.

The first thing we're going to play around with is one of the least likely to blow up in your face. Compiler flags are used to define constants at build time, that can then be used in your code to do some tricky things to customize your code for specific build configurations.
There are 3 possible places to set these up:
OTHER CFLAGS (Other C Flags)
GCC PREPROCESSOR DEFINITIONS ( Preprocessor Macros)
INFOPLIST PREPROCESSOR DEFINITIONS ( Info.plist Preprocessor Definitions…
