Pear is really nice. I am very happy with it.

I've always used MySQL databases and the MySQL functions in PHP for my code
in the past. However, I'm now working on a project that I want the project
to be able to be database independent so that the user of the project can
use whatever database he/she wishes. I'm looking primarily at providing
support for MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, & SQL Server databases. What's the
general consensus on how to handle this? Do I need to look at using
PEAR::DB so that the type of database is "hidden" from my code or would I
look at writing different include files for each database type and each of
the include files use the relevant PHP functions? Or some other totally
different way?
