Downloading PECL extensions

Downloading PECL extensions

There are several options for downloading PECL extensions, such as:

  • http://pecl.php.net

    The PECL web site contains information about the different extensions that are offered by the PHP Development Team. The information available here includes: ChangeLog, release notes, requirements and other similar details.

  • pear download extname

    PECL extensions that have releases listed on the PECL web site are available for download and installation using the pear command. Specific revisions may also be specified.

  • CVS

    Most PECL extensions also reside in CVS. A web-based view may be seen at http://cvs.php.net/pecl/. To download straight from CVS, the following sequence of commands may be used. Note that phpfi is the password for user cvsread:

    $ cvs -d:pserver:cvsread@cvs.php.net:/repository login 
    $ cvs -d:pserver:cvsread@cvs.php.net:/repository co pecl/extname

  • Windows downloads

    Windows users may find compiled PECL binaries by downloading the Collection of PECL modules from the PHP Downloads page, and by retrieving a PECL Snapshot. To compile PHP under Windows, read the appropriate chapter.
