Proper Way To Include PEAR CSV Extension

I've been using this function for a year now. It does work I know that but occasionally, someone has issues with it on their server.

I'm just wondering if anyone can spot an issue or can suggest a better approach. This approach is far older than a year so I thought it might be worth a try.

function wtgpt_pearcsv_include(){
    if (strtoupper(substr(PHP_OS, 0, 3)) === 'WIN'){
    require_once 'File/CSV.php';

Open in new window

someone has issues

Who, what issues?  It looks like the only difference between the function calls is a semi-colon vs a colon.

Customers. Information is vague, I would need access to their hosting php ini. This question is in response to a year of use on my software.

If you think it looks good then I'm sticking with it. I'm just checking because I was still really new to PHP when I started using this.
