With help from Dave Sifry of Technorati, I have released Weblog_Pinger, a weblog notification class library for PHP that sends update pings over XML-RPC to services such as Weblogs.Com, Blo.gs, Ping-o-Matic and Technorati.

The code has been released as open source under the GNU General Public License.

Dave's going to be writing about this code on the Technorati Developers Wiki, which has an extensive section devoted to how to ping the site with weblogging software.

What is PHP?




PHP is a widely-used general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded into HTML.
