Some of the PEAR stuff is older and unmaintained, which is one possible reason. More likely is that folks often expect PEAR to be the end-all, be-all, and that was never the intent. PEAR is supposed to jump-start a project and extend some built-in functionality, not provide a framework or do all of the work for folks who consider themselves "programmers" because they can iterate an array in just twenty-seven lines of procedural code. As for folks who say that PEAR and PECL don't work --- the most common reason for this is user error or system configuration issues. I've experienced the same issues myself over the years.... quite frustrating, but sure enough, it was my fault most times. -- </Daniel P.
