PEAR package installation path

Jul 9, 2010 at 8:03 PM
I just have a quick question regarding the installation path of the PHPExcel PEAR package: In PHPExcel 1.7.2, the PEAR package PHPExcel-1.7.2.tgz installed right into my default PEAR directory (/usr/local/lib/php), but in the new version 1.7.3, the PEAR package PHPExcel-1.7.3.tgz installed into a subdirectory called PHPExcel off of my default PEAR directory (/usr/local/lib/php/PHPExcel). This directory change altered the include I need to do to include the base class PHPExcel.php because there is now an extra PHPExcel directory (changed from /usr/local/lib/php/PHPExcel.php to /usr/local/lib/php/PHPExcel/PHPExcel.php). Is this an intentional change that will remain for future releases? Thanks for your help. Ryan

This indeed was intentional and will remain for future releases. We now also have a channel server up at
