Compiling shared PECL extensions with PEAR

Compiling shared PECL extensions with PEAR

PEAR makes it easy to create shared PHP extensions. Using the pear command, do the following:

$ pear install extname

This will download the source for extname, compile, and install into your extension_dir. may then be loaded via php.ini

By default, the pear command will not install packages that are marked with the alpha or beta state. If no stable packages are available, you may install a beta package using the following command:

$ pear install extname-beta

You may also install a specific version using this variant:

$ pear install extname-0.1
