Pádraic Brady's Blog:
Doing that thing called PEAR - Packaging Source Code for PEAR Distribution
October 26, 2007 @ 14:56:51

Pádraic Brady has followed up his last post on PEAR. This time he's covered the method to package and distribute source code using the PEAR installer.
All right then! You read the last blog entry advocating PEAR (or found it during the week ;-)) and you want to know all about packaging code so your users can install your library or application using the PEAR installer. A few things first:

1. You don't need to propose a package to PEAR to do this.
2. You don't need to create a PEAR "channel" although it's very much recommended (another future blog post no doubt).
3. You don't need a whole lot of effort.

Taking your source code, and generating a PEAR package is a relatively simple task.
He covers the process at lengths with easy to follow steps.
