PEAR is short for "PHP Extension and Application Repository" and is pronounced just like the fruit. The purpose of PEAR is to provide:

  • A structured library of open-sourced code for PHP users
  • A system for code distribution and package maintenance
  • A standard style for code written in PHP, specified here
  • The PHP Extension Community Library (PECL), see more below
  • A web site, mailing lists and download mirrors to support the PHP/PEAR community

PEAR is a community-driven project with the PEAR Group as the governing body. The project has been founded by Stig S. Bakken in 1999 and quite a lot of people have joined the project since then.
