Description: ------------ When attempting to use the latest currently available version of Text_Highlighter (0.6.6), it returns an error on line 252 relating to a mismatched number of parameters for preg_match. It turns out that in PHP 4.3.3, an additional parameter for the starting position was added to preg_match. This additional parameter was then utilized in Text_Highlighter starting with version 0.6.0. However, I couldn't find anything in the changelog or documentation that mentioned PHP 4.3.3 being a requirement. Expected result: ---------------- The installer for PEAR should be fixed to require PHP 4.3.3 or later as appropriate. After checking earlier versions of Text_Highlighter, I found version 0.5.1 is the latest that will work on PHP 4.3.2.
