Rasmus Mentions PEAR

Here we have Rasmus talking about PHP.

Q: How will PEAR fit into the scheme of things with PHP?

A: I think it’s vital. We need a better way of installing applications. The PEAR installer is needed at this point, as it is hard to download any PHP application and just make it work. If we can get a single unified installer so you can see PEAR and just make it work, that would be cool.

I have a few packages in PEAR, and depend on even more, so it’s nice to see the project getting good press.

Are you stuck with a legacy PHP application? You should buy my book because it gives you a step-by-step guide to improving your codebase, all while keeping it running the whole time.

  1. another good example of where the term PEAR is used to denote a specific subproject (the Installer in this case) of PEAR without spelling it out.
