First cut, Porting to calc_deco_celining() to PHP:
PHP Code:

/* =============================================================================== */
/*     Purpose: This subprogram calculates the deco ceiling (the safe ascent */
/*     depth) in each compartment, based on the allowable gradients, and then */
/*     finds the deepest deco ceiling across all compartments.  This deepest */
/*     value (Deco Ceiling Depth) is then used by the Decompression Stop */
/*     subroutine to determine the actual deco schedule. */
/* =============================================================================== */
/*     https://www.unix.com/whats-your-mind/185211-port-vpm-decompression-algorithm-php-then-dive-computer.html */
/* =============================================================================== */
function calc_deco_ceiling($deco_ceiling_depth$helium_pressure,$nitrogen_pressure,$allowable_gradient_he$allowable_gradient_n2,$dive)


/* loop */
/* =============================================================================== */
/*     Since there are two sets of allowable gradients being tracked, one for */
/*     helium and one for nitrogen, a "weighted allowable gradient" must be */
/*     computed each time based on the proportions of helium and nitrogen in */
/*     each compartment.  This proportioning follows the methodology of */
/*     Buhlmann/Keller.  If there is no helium and nitrogen in the compartment, */
/*     such as after extended periods of oxygen breathing, then the minimum value */
/*     across both gases will be used.  It is important to note that if a */
/*     compartment is empty of helium and nitrogen, then the weighted allowable */
/*     gradient formula cannot be used since it will result in division by zero. */
/* =============================================================================== */

for ($i 1$i <= 16; ++$i) {
$helium_pressure[$i 1] + $nitrogen_pressure[$i 1];
        if (
$gas_loading 0) {

/* =============================================================================== */
/*     The tolerated ambient pressure cannot be less than zero absolute, i.e., */
/*     the vacuum of outer space! */
/* =============================================================================== */

if ($tolerated_ambient_pressure 0) {
$tolerated_ambient_pressure 0.0;
$compartment_deco_ceiling[$i 1] = 
$tolerated_ambient_pressure $dive['barometric_pressure'];

/* =============================================================================== */
/*     The Deco Ceiling Depth is computed in a loop after all of the individual */
/*     compartment deco ceilings have been calculated.  It is important that the */
/*     Deco Ceiling Depth (max deco ceiling across all compartments) only be */
/*     extracted from the compartment values and not be compared against some */
/*     initialization value.  For example, if MAX(Deco_Ceiling_Depth . .) was */
/*     compared against zero, this could cause a program lockup because sometimes */
/*     the Deco Ceiling Depth needs to be negative (but not less than zero */
/*     absolute ambient pressure) in order to decompress to the last stop at zero */
/*     depth. */
/* =============================================================================== */

$deco_ceiling_depth $compartment_deco_ceiling[0];
    for (

/* Computing MAX */

Breathing gas mixtures other than air underwater and especially using rebreather technology underwater, are activities which require considerable specialized training and certification.
