php -a gives you an interactive environment in which you can test code.

Python and PHP are programming languages.  That interactive
environment your referring (IDLE) to is a tool separate from the
programming language that just happens to be distributed with the
windows version of the installation package.  It's not part of Python.

I think that the features in IDLE are probably duplicated by several
different PHP IDEs.  There are probably several alternatives to IDLE
available.  There might even be an IDE that does code testing and
debugging for both languages better than IDLE does.

I'm sorry I can't provide more specific examples.  I've found that Vim
suits me better in the development environment than any IDE.
