i looked at it but i'm missing the relation to smarty.

it merely does:

Code:
        $source = implode(file($this->template_dir . '/' . $template));
        echo preg_replace('!\{\$(.*)\}!Ue', '$this->_tpl_vars[\'$1\']', $source);


of course it does it faster than my snippet above and it does anything anyway faster than smarty does, but it does nothing else.

the niche where people need a c-extension to solve the above problem is very thin IMHO.

i wouldn't mind if smarty's compiler was 3 times slower (it is only called once anyway) but there is merit to get smarty going as an extension (for the things that are called thousands of times):

except of the load-time of the .php-file there are at least two execution-paths that are worth being accelerated by native code:

- the call to display() and anything below that if a compiled template is found

- the call to display() and anything below if a cached file is found.


there is this outline about what smarty is:
http://news.php.net/article.php?group=php.template&article=531

it has it's age, but it still reflects what smarty is about and where it belongs.
