Where can I find PEAR DB??

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I have a book which had code that includes the line:

require 'DB.php';

I know that this is from the PEAR code modules, but when I downloaded
them and unpacked the directory, they "DB.php" module does not exist.
Is this out of date or do I need to go somewhere else to get this
extra module?

There is a command named "pear", which is package installer, similar to  
the "cpan" command from another language.
Execute "pear install DB" as a user who can write to the PEAR directories
and you should be ok. Here is the help for the "pear" command:
