There are several extensions that get moved from core into PECL but lack 
a page at However, this one (FDF) isn't even in SVN so 
this is a bug. This extension was deleted and not moved, whereas NEWS 
says it was moved.


However, nothing here:


Assigning to Pierre.

no idea what's happened here. It was in CVS.

Looks like fdf wasn't re-commited to PECL after it was removed from php-src in CVS. I've put the most recent revision that was in SVN (at the head of 5.2) in PECL where it apparently belongs.

I still don't seem to find it on the PECL site anywhere.  Can you please post a link to it?  Also, if there is some new way of implementation of it, I am hoping you will provide some documentation on how to use it, if it is different than before.

It is in SVN. It won't be in as it is a dead package. Fetch the src from the pecl/fdf module.

I have found them on the SVN site here:

But there is no php_fdf.dll or fdftk.dll.  Also, if there is some new way I need to implement the FDF extension, I don't seem any documentation on it.

Please stop to open this bug again and again. It is closed now as the src are back to SVN.

If you need a DLL to work with 5.2, take the last 5.2 release, it still has it. But there is no way to get something for 5.3+.

As I stated in my orignal comment:

"I have even tried using the previous php_fdf.dll and fdftk.dll from my previous installation, but it doesn't seem to recognize that they are there even after adding extension=php_fdf.dll to the php.ini."

My previous version was 5.2, so this bug shouldn't be closed until there is resolution to the problem.


 [2009-12-01 18:53 UTC]
The resolution of this problem is:
- the src are now back to the PECL SVN repository
- PHP 5.2 still has fdf, use it.

Now if you can't get 5.2 working with this DLL, please go to one of the numerous support channel to get some help on how to setup PHP and its DLL correctly. But the bug tracker is not a support channel.

close it again.

There will not be fdf extension in PHP 5.3. Period. If you have problems with the pecl extensions, use to report them.
