I've been getting into OOP techniques in PHP (was before the break too) and I think I've pretty much got my head around it. I've always read alot about PEAR, but never really used it, as I thought I'd be better off learning the fundamentals and writting class/functions myself.
But the questions has come around again... What is PEAR? What can it do? Is it worth investigating more? Will it benefit me?
I thought I'd ask here, who actually uses PEAR? How has it benefitted you? Is it worth me using it? The kind of project I'm on at the moment is writing a tailor made CMS that I can plug into client web sites.
Thanks for your time!
