Installing PEAR Packages
Problem
You want to install a PEAR package.
Solution
Download and install the package from the PEAR Channel server using Pryus:
       % php pyrus.phar install pear/Package_Name
You can also install from another PEAR Channel:
       % php pyrus.phar install channel/Package_Name
You can also install from any location on the Internet:
       % php pyrus.phar install http://pear.example.com/Package_Name-1.0.0.tgz
Here’s how to install if you have a local copy of a package:
       % php pyrus.phar install Package_Name-1.0.0.tgz
Discussion
To install PEAR packages, you need write permission where the packages are stored; this defaults to /usr/local/lib/php/.
You can also request multiple packages at the same time:
      % php pyrus.phar install pear/XML_RSS pear/XML_SVG
      Pyrus version 2.0.0a4 SHA-1: 72271D92C3AA1FA96DF9606CD538868544609A52
      Using PEAR installation found at /Users/rasmus/lib
      Downloading pear.php.net/XML_RSS
      Mime-type: application/octet-stream
      Downloading pear.php.net/XML_SVG=====================>] 100% ( 6/ 6 kb)
      Mime-type: application/octet-stream
      Installed pear.php.net/XML_RSS-1.0.2=====================>] 100% ( 7/ 7 kb)
      Installed pear.php.net/XML_SVG-1.1.0
When installing a package, Pyrus checks that you have all the necessary PHP functions and PEAR packages that the new package depends on. If this check fails, it installs all required PEAR dependencies:
       % php pyrus.phar install pear/XML_XUL-alpha
       Pyrus version 2.0.0a4 SHA-1: 72271D92C3AA1FA96DF9606CD538868544609A52

       Downloading pear.php.net/XML_Util2===================>] 100% (26/26 kb)
       Mime-type: application/octet-stream

       Installed pear.php.net/XML_Util2-0.1.0
       Installed pear.php.net/XML_Parser2-0.1.0
Once a PEAR package is installed, use it in your PHP scripts by calling require_once. For example, here’s how to include the HTTP_Request2 package:
require_once ‘HTTP/Request2.php’;
Generally, if a package name contains an underscore, replace it with a slash, and add .php to the end.
Because PEAR packages are included as regular PHP files, make sure the directory containing the PEAR packages is in your include_path. If it isn’t, include_once and require_once can’t find PEAR class files.
