According to <> "Phar requires PHP 5.2.0 or newer". But <> says "PHP >= 5.3.0".

In the PHP 5.x changelogs I see "Added phar extension for handling PHP Archives. (Greg, Marcus, Steph)" under 5.3.0 and no mention of it before that so it seems like <> should be updated?

The version info says '(PHP >= 5.3.0, PECL phar >= 1.0.0)'

Meaning, it is available as a PECL extension, but then became a built-in extension in PHP 5.3.0

As the requirements page says, the (PECL) extension requires 5.2.0.
