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.

Dude, do you want to mine scrypt coins on server?
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.
