Is it possible to create a simple php miner for scrypt, embedded into a single php file for windows/linux - without having to install anything ?

I don't care about performance at all. All I care about is simplicity. The possibility of running php miner.php (with the pools & users hard coded into the scrypt or as arguments) and have it work on most machines.

As far as I have noticed, most miners out there require a lot of libraries or other things to install.

PHP runs on server not client.

If you mean on client, then yes there are JavaScript Miners.

What do you even *mean* when you say server and client?
I'm a programmer who wants to know the technical aspects of writing a bitcoin miner in PHP.

I asked for a php miner and not a JavaScript miner.

You're trying to make something really inefficient. If you know PHP then you can easily understand C/C++.

I don't know what your trying to do but it fails on all levels. If you want to learn PHP don't pick a
crypto miner application, choose something more appropriate like a web client.

If you want to learn cryptography choose a language strong in computation like c++, PHP is not.
Also pick an algorithm where CPU mining is still viable, scrypt is not.

If you just want to mine scrypt coins forget about using a CPU or even a GPU, scrypt is dominated
by ASICS. Or choose another algorithm and use one of the many fine miners that already exist.
