Zend Framework Gets An Unofficial PEAR Channel

Thanks to the phpmafia, the Zend Framework has a “PEAR”:http://pear.php.net/ channel that you can use to install it from. Details can be found on “the author’s blog”:http://fashion.hosmoz.net/post/2007/02/27/Channel-PEAR-PHPMafia-package-Zend-Framework, however, they are in French. Babelfish will translate them for you but it ends up sounding like a passage out of “Borat”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0443453/. So I’ll paraphrase for you and give you the details.

The author, Geoffrey, with some help from “Arnaud Limbourg”:http://www.limbourg.com/arnaud/blog/, has created a PEAR channel to use in installing Zend Framework. As with any PEAR channel, the first thing you have to do is tell PEAR to go “discover” the channel.

p. Then, you just tell it to install.

p. Since this is Geoffrey’s first attempt at a PEAR channel, he is asking for people to test it and report any problem they have with it to pear at phpmafia dot net

About Cal Evans

Many moons ago, at the tender age of 14, Cal touched his first computer. (We're using the term "computer" loosely here, it was a TRS-80 Model 1) Since then his life has never been the same. He graduated from TRS-80s to Commodores and eventually to IBM PCs.   For the past 10 years, Cal has worked with PHP and MySQL on Linux OSX, and when necessary, Windows. He has built on a variety of projects ranging in size from simple web pages to multi-million dollar web applications. When not banging his head on his monitor, attempting a blood sacrifice to get a particular piece of code working, he enjoys building and managing development teams using his widely imitated but never patented management style of "management by wandering around". Cal is happily married to wife 1.33, the lovely and talented Kathy. Together they have 2 kids who were both bright enough not to pursue a career in IT. Cal blogs at http://blog.calevans.com and is the founder and host of Nomad PHP
