Description:
------------
Witness the following: 
 
http://pear.php.net/manual/en/
package.database.db.db.iserror.php 
 
How is this to be invoked? 
 
Where is the example? 
 
Contrast this with the following: 
  http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.mysql-connect.php 
...and: 
  http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.mysql-error.php 
 
PHP as a language is only as popular as it is because it 
has very well-written, user-supported (and 
user-supplemented) documentation.  Have you programmed in 
Ruby lately?  I appreciate the documentation that is out 
there, but I feel it is obvious that PEAR needs to 
encourage more user contribution to documentation, like the 
standard PHP documentation does.

Tobias Schlitt is working on that.

There is a proff of concept for that viewable at http://
zuhause.bei.tobias-schlitt.de:81/manual/en/ . This can at 
the moment only add new comments, which are directly 
viewable. I'll start implementing this today, with admin 
interfaces for package maitainers and website admins.

Checked the toby at php.net url and could not figure out how to add comments. Will keep an eye on this, please keep me informed if you?d like feedback.  Thanks for looking at this!

Sorry, guys, but I'm quite to busy to realize this in the upcoming weeks... Maybe someone else can take care of it.

This was fixed a long time ago.  Noticed bug now, so closing it.
