hi everyone.

i am not sure if this is the correct place to put this but hope that somebody with similar experince in this area will lend me a hand.

i am trying to get to grips with zend framwork 2 and want to install the ZFtools onto my computer. i have tried following the example of octramus



http://stackoverflow.com/questions/15512212/cannot-create-phar-from-zftool-of-zend-framework-2


i am trying to download ZFTool for zendframework 2 as a PHAR into my system-i basically want to be able to use the ZF tool from anywhere in my command lines to create projects.

i was able to to do the following:

PHP Code:
 git clone git://github.com/zendframework/ZFTool.git 
this gave me the following message;

PHP Code:
Cloning into 'ZFTool'... 
i then did this:

PHP Code:
cd ZFTools 
that command took me to the folder for ZF tools i.e:
PHP Code:
 Andreea@Andreea-HP ~/ZFTool 
however i then ran into problems when i tried to install composer with it ( please note that composer is actually already installed on my system).

PHP Code:
curl -s https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
-bashcurlcommand not found 
i even tried this:

PHP Code:
 bin/create-phar
Error
to compile the PHAR file you need to execute composer install inside the         ZFTool module 
i would really appreciate any help or advice.

please note that i have already installed composer on my system and had previously installed the ZFtool for Framework 1 (so, i was wondering if any of these previously installed tools might be causing problems)

warm regards

Andreea
