Ok this is an easy one.

I'm using pear for a mail example in a book, but it wont run properly and im not sure if pear is actually installed.
Inside the php dir there is a file called go-pear.bat & a folder called pear containing another folder called
go-pear-bundle, is this pear? there is also a file called go-pear.php
which, when ran brings up an interface to download pear. if i do infact need to run this where should pear be downloaded to?

I iz confused please direct me!!!!!!

thanks
