Because we aren't currently wrapping Xapian classes as PHP classes, that
has to be:

$ati = Database_allterms_begin($db);

It would be much better to be able to wrap as PHP classes, but SWIG
doesn't yet support that for PHP5, and the PHP4 support wasn't quite
working last time I tried (though it's a lot better than it was).

I've made major improvements to the PHP bindings documentation since the
last release.  You can see the latest version here, though beware that
some things aren't true for the previous release (most notably we had
to rename overloaded methods in 0.9.2 and earlier):


If you have suggestions for further improvements, send them in.  Patches
are preferred if possible.
