PHQL is implemented as a parser (written in C) that translates syntax in that of the target RDBMS. It allows Phalcon to offer a unified SQL language to the developer, while internally doing all the work of translating PHQL instructions to the most optimal SQL instructions depending on the RDBMS type associated with a model.

To achieve the highest performance possible, we wrote a parser that uses the same technology as SQLite. This technology provides a small in-memory parser with a very low memory footprint that is also thread-safe.


$intermediate = Phalcon\Mvc\Model\Query\Lang::parsePHQL("SELECT r.* FROM Robots r LIMIT 10");


public static string parsePHQL (string $phql)

Parses a PHQL statement returning an intermediate representation (IR)
