Paradox and PHP 5.1.2

P: n/a
Anyone having any success with the paradox extension? 'pear install
paradox' doesn't work. 'pecl install paradox' seem to do something, but
none of the px_??? wrapper functions are found. I do have
/usr/share/pear in my include_path.

Thanks,
John Navratil

I've never tried the Paradox extension specifically, but PECL extensions
need to be enabled in the php.ini on the web server, as they're
binary libraries rather than just PHP code like PEAR. Adding a line like:

extension=paradox.so

Should get it going on most UNIX/Linux/*BSD platforms. On Windows, I
believe it'll be something like (Windows PHP users, please correct me if
I'm wrong):

extension=php_paradox.dll

After that, just restart your web server and you should have the Paradox
functions available. Check phpinfo() output to be sure.

Just so! Thank you! I was fooled by the documentation which claimed
there was no need to modify php.ini :(
