PEAR: Quick Survey

Do you guys use PEAR regularly?

I haven't used it at all and wonder if I'm outmoded in PHP fashion.

(Laugh) I would, if I could get it to ^$#% install.

Much warmth,

I use PHP 4.2.2 (with RH9) in production at an extremely huge company
that does payroll. I haven't used PEAR. The marketing message didn't
get to me on PEAR until last week on this when an online article
reviewed it. I have to admit that I skimmed the article briefly. When
I read about it, I couldn't make up my mind whether this was an
all-or-nothing framework or a huge snippet library. If it's a
framework, I kind of hate those unless it's a portal framework or some
office workflow engine. The reason I have hated frameworks is because
they often have so many strings that you have to wire up before the
thing works properly.

I have managed well without PEAR. When I want to do something, I found
the PHP online manual, with especially the extra submissions by users,
has been stellar. Need to do SMTP with an attachment? Read about it in
the socket library online at php.net. It's that sort of thing that I
have relied on.

Nope. Personally I hate PEAR. I've used it just 2 times. The first
time was when we needed wraper for DB stuffs to see/test how the PPC
site works on different DBs like MySQL, Postgre, etc. But, we didn't
like the PEAR DB class much. Recently, I woked on SOAP; I'd thougt I
should go for NuSOAP instead of PEAR, but the clients forced me to use
PEAR SOAP 'coz the 3rd party modules for the telephone voice server
were already using it.
I haven't used it at all and wonder if I'm outmoded in PHP fashion.

I like PEAR. It's the CPAN of PHP (I hope will be more huge with undred
of packeges). It isn't a framework but a collection of well categorized
packeges.
I used it for SOAP (PEAR:SOAP) that is very powerful package for
implementing services.

Regards.
