If you're %$^^bent on using PHP, then you might consider using shared
memory.  PHP has routines that will allow you to write to and retrieve from
?nix shared memory segments.  The PHP routines are a bit quirky to use but
they work.  It will allow you to store what ever you want in heap memory of
your server.  I had a situation where I needed to retrieve information in
shared memory segments created and feed by unrelated background processes.
This may be easier than moving to another platform or language.

For info on shared memory see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shared_memory,
www.cs.cf.ac.uk/Dave/C/node27.html (this has C/C++ examples), and

I would recomend using the shmop functions.  The other PHP shared memory
functions suck.
