Overview

PEAR, the PHP Extension and Application Repository, is a bountiful resource for any PHP developer. Within its confines lie the tools that you need to do your job more quickly and efficiently. You need to be able to quickly assess and determine which PEAR package is the right one for the task you are up against. Then you need to know the API and see some examples of how to best use it. Foundations of PEAR is your one-stop resource for locating the PEAR package you need. Authors Nathan Good and Allan Kent have carefully selected the most useful and widely used packages for this book.

Each package is broken down logically by function, and each one is covered in detail. The book presents each package in a manner that allows you to jump quickly to the key items you need to implement a solution. The authors understand that you need to see the packages in action—each performing in real-world applications. So they’ve included four projects in the book that each use a combination of PEAR packages in their implementations. Once you’re armed with the knowledge in this book, you’ll be set to take your PHP development to a new level.

Meet the Author

Allan Kent lives, works, and plays in Cape Town, South Africa. In the last four years, he's been implicated in at least 10 books dealing with PHP and web-related topics. When not being harassed by persistent editors about deadlines, he works doing new media design at Lodestone, which he co-owns. When not writing or programming, he enjoys relaxing at home with Wendy and their cats.

Nathan A. Good lives in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. He is a contractor with Alliance of Computer Professionals in Bloomington. When he isn't writing software, Nathan enjoys building PCs and servers, reading about and working with new technologies, and trying to get all his friends to make the move to open source software. When he's not at a computer (which he admits is not often), he spends time with his family, at his church, and at the movies.
