Hi Alvaro

You mentioned in your reply:

The machine I'm working on has the PHP AMQP PECL extension (http://
www.php.net/manual/en/amqp.installation.php) which I think differs
from the examples in the tutorials in that it doesn't seem to support
the callback mechanism that is documented in the examples - or I'm
missing something!
The version I'm using doesn't seems to have the 'channel' object in
the documentation (http://www.php.net/manual/en/book.amqp.php) through
which the call back is set up in the tutorial examples.
Is there an explanation somewhere of the different libraries and what
they support? I'm finding it a bit tricky as a newcomer to establish
which functionality and therefore which library I should be using -
there is one already installed on the server so feel inclined to use
that if at all possible.
It looks like the version I have doesn't provide the callback facility
and I'd have to implement some daemon that periodically polls for
messages and then acts upong them - is this right for the library that
I have?

Thanks & regards,
