Using pear is easy. If you've used CPAN to install perl modules, then you'll find pear to be kind of like CPAN for php.
You can just add to sf page that PEL can also be installed as a pear module with these steps: 1) pear must be already installed and configured on user's server. The steps for installing are listed at pear.php.net Then from command like do this: # pear channel-discover pear.sharedlog.com # pear install sharedlog/PEL This will install all the classes and then to use PEL you just add require_once 'PEL/PelJpeg.php'; require_once 'PEL/PelTiff.php'; That's all. Also if you are a developer and write an application that requires PEL, and you package your application as pear package, you can just list the PEL as a dependency and provide a channel pear.sharedlog.com Then the client when installing you application with pear installer will automatically download and install PEL That was actually the reason why I added PEL to my pear channel. With pear upgrading is also easy and in some rare cases when the new version turns out to have bugs, it's also very easy to downgrade to previous version. -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] On Behalf Of Martin Geisler Sent: Thursday, January 17, 2008 1:50 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: PEL added to my pear channel Dmitri <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> writes: Hi Dmitri > I just added the PEL-0.9.1 to my new pear channel.

If you like, I could give you access to the PEL homepage on SF and then you'll be more than welcome to put the channel there (if that is possible?) and write a bit about it. -- Martin Geisler VIFF (Virtual Ideal Functionality Framework) brings easy and efficient SMPC (Secure Multi-Party Computation) to Python.
