Bug #16547 The phar for PEAR installer uses ereg() which is deprecated
Submitted: 2009-08-24 15:32 UTC
From: mgdm Assigned: dufuz
Status: Closed Package: PEAR (version 1.8.1)
PHP Version: 5.3.0 OS: Linux

Description: ------------ the script "index.php" inside the PHAR at uses the ereg() function which is deprecated. Building 5.3 without ereg enabled works perfectly aside from this step. Test script: --------------- Running "make install" on a PHP 5.3 build that has ext/ereg disabled. It dies on the install-pear job. Expected result: ---------------- Script should use a preg expression instead. Actual result: -------------- Installing PEAR environment: /opt/php53/lib/php/ --2009-08-24 10:29:58-- Resolving Connecting to||:80... connected.

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the 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.

The fix will go live when a PEAR stable has been made, that's the only time we update the phar files.
