Noob to fann.  Just installed pear, and I find the "pear install fann" instruction results in:
No releases available for package "" - package pecl/fann can be
installed with "pecl install fann"
Cannot initialize 'fann', invalid or missing package file
Package "fann" is not valid
install failed

So, I went to, as described, but I was unable to find whatever URI I am supposed to use.  I downloaded the file, but couldn't figure out how I am supposed to install it using pear, or figure out how to put a URI in the pear command such that it would work.

C:\PHP>pear install
downloading fann ...
Starting to download fann (Unknown size)
.....done: 7,959 bytes
XML error: EntityRef: expecting ';' at line 86
Download of "" succeeded, but it is not a valid package
Invalid or missing remote package file
Package "" is not valid
install failed

I also tried:
C:\PHP>pear install
downloading fann-0.1.1.tgz ...
Starting to download fann-0.1.1.tgz (9,509 bytes)
.....done: 9,509 bytes
3 source files, building
ERROR: The DSP fann.dsp does not exist.

Also, there is a link:
If you cannot install FANN-PHP using PEAR, you can try following the (obsolete) instructions at

But alas, the link is broken.  If anyone has any useful information, or the obsolete instructions, it would be a great help.

Please let me know -- I am anxious to get started.

There are precompiled DLLs available now, which are supposed to be
the easiest way to add a PECL package on Windows.
