Hello, I have been unable to initialize the sqlanywhere16 PHP extension for the PHP 8.1 version for several days now.

I followed the documentation to the letter and yet when I initialize SQL ANYWHERE, this is what php returns to me:

PHP Warning: PHP Startup: sqlanywhere: Unable to initialize module

Yet everything works on a PHP 7.4 version. The server is a debian 11.

EDIT: Tried on SQLAnywhere 17 too.

Hi! Where did you find the module for PHP 8.1?

AFAIK, you would currently need to build it yourself, the source code is available on the linked page...

We would love a compiled PHP 8.1 dll to be added to the page as our customers can compile themselves, (and will end up with the same process), but for audit purposes need it to come from SAP directly.

Yes, I understand the irony of being able to check the code you compile from an audit perspective but that only really works if you understand it ;)
