PEAR Install

Don’t know nothing about PEAR. But the PEAR Spreadsheet Excel Writer looks like a nice tool. I found here that I am supposed to type in these commands:

$ pear install OLE
$ pear install Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer

which didn’t work, because both packages are “not stable”, but only beta. So another search led me to these commands:

$ pear config-set preferred_state beta
$ pear install OLE
$ pear install Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer
$ pear config-set preferred_state stable

and it worked!
