I tried to install PEAR under php v 4.2.1, but the command in the documentation: 

# lynx -source | php

Fails with the following:

PHP Fatal error:  Call to undefined function:  set_include_path() in - on line 594

Test script:
Sure enough,

tells me that this wonderful system call is >= 4.3.0 only!

I made the a simple change to a local copy of go-pear.php and it chugged along merrily.

This following 4-line diff should fix it for everyone:

< set_include_path($ptmp);
> ini_set('include_path', $ptmp);


Expected result:
Should install on PHP v4.2.0+

Actual result:
only installs on PHP v4.3.0+

go-pear.php dies with:

PHP Fatal error:  Call to undefined function:  set_include_path() in - on line 594

Not a documentation issue, it's a website problem.

Yes, we have to keep 4.2.x support. But you should really update your system, to do not say you must update it.

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.
