Description: ------------ Would it be possible to add redirect support when the redirect is via: <META http-equiv="refresh" content="5;<URL>"> and the content-type header is "text/html". I have already implemented part of this and would be willing to submit a patch.

The regex requires a bit of polishing, it will not handle f.e. the following: <meta content="1, URL=..." http-equiv="Refresh"> or <meta http-equiv='Refresh' content='1, URL=...'> Also the 60-second limit seems a bit arbitrary.

The file at http://pricepages.org/pear/Client.metaTag.diff.zip has been updated with a new patch that should be smarter about such things. The 60 second redirect, though, is arbitrary. I figure that 60 seconds is enough time for someone to actually get some meaningful information off of a page, so therefore the redirect after that time may be counter-intuitive. Feel free to change it if you want.

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on pear.php.net by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the pear.php.net website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
