PEAR Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies
  4. PEAR-1.10.12.tgz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

PEAR - The PEAR Installer

image

What is the PEAR Installer? What is PEAR?

PEAR is the PHP Extension and Application Repository, found at http://pear.php.net.

The PEAR Installer is this software, which contains executable files and PHP code that is used to download and install PEAR code from pear.php.net.

PEAR contains useful software libraries and applications such as MDB2 (database abstraction), HTML_QuickForm (HTML forms management), PhpDocumentor (auto-documentation generator), DB_DataObject (Data Access Abstraction), and many hundreds more. Browse all available packages at http://pear.php.net, the list is constantly growing and updating to reflect improvements in the PHP language.

Warning

Do not run PEAR without installing it - if you downloaded this tarball manually, you MUST install it. Read the instructions in INSTALL prior to use.

Documentation

Documentation for PEAR can be found at http://pear.php.net/manual/. Installation documentation can be found in the INSTALL file included in this tarball.

Tests

Run the tests without installation as follows:

$ ./scripts/pear.sh run-tests -r tests

You should have the Text_Diff package installed to get nicer error output.

To run the tests with another PHP version, modify php_bin and set the PHP_PEAR_PHP_BIN environment variable:

$ pear config-set php_bin /usr/local/bin/php7
$ PHP_PEAR_PHP_BIN=/usr/local/bin/php7 ./scripts/pear.sh run-tests -r tests

Happy PHPing, we hope PEAR will be a great tool for your development work!

Test dependencies

  • zlib

Releasing

Create a PEAR package as well as phars for pear-less installation:

$ rm -f PEAR-*.tgz
$ pear package package2.xml
$ cd go-pear-tarballs
$ rm -f PEAR-*
$ cp ../PEAR-*.tgz .
$ gunzip PEAR-*.tgz
$ pear download -Z Archive_Tar Console_Getopt Structures_Graph XML_Util
$ mkdir src && cd src
$ for i in ../*.tar; do tar xvf $i; done
$ mv *\/* .
$ cd ../../
$ php make-gopear-phar.php
$ php make-installpear-nozlib-phar.php

(Or simply run build-release.sh).

go-pear.phar is contains the PEAR installer installer that asks questions where to install it. It is available from http://pear.php.net/go-pear.phar.

install-pear-nozlib.phar installs PEAR automatically without asking anything. It is shipped with PHP itself.
