  • Has complete PEAR Credits (based on the packages you have installed).

Repository: PEAR - License: PHP License - By Greg Beaver (lead)

PEAR_PackageFileManager takes an existing package.xml file and updates it with a new filelist and changelog

A.22.5.1 Description

This package revolutionizes the maintenance of PEAR packages. With a few parameters, the entire package.xml is automatically updated with a listing of all files in a package.

Features include

  • reads in an existing package.xml file, and only changes the release/changelog

  • a plugin system for retrieving files in a directory. Currently two plugins exist, one for standard recursive directory content listing, and one that reads the CVS/Entries files and generates a file listing based on the contents of a checked out CVS repository

  • incredibly flexible options for assigning install roles to files/directories

  • ability to ignore any file based on a * ? wildcard-enabled string(s)

  • ability to include only files that match a * ? wildcard-enabled string(s)

  • ability to manage dependencies

  • can output the package.xml in any directory, and read in the package.xml file from any directory.

  • can specify a different name for the package.xml file

As of version 1.2.0, PEAR_PackageFileManager is fully unit tested.
