this question is related to the code sample I received in
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Web_Languages-Standards/PHP/Q_27993920.html

chdir(dirname(__FILE__));
require_once 'class.email.php';

// Parse incoming email from STDIN
$email = email::parseSTDIN();

//Who sent the message
$sender=($email->getSenderEmail() );
//TheMessage itself
$message = trim($email->getTextContent());
//Who the Message was sent to
$to =  ($email->getRecipientEmail());
//The Subject of the eMail
$subject = ($email->getSubject());

Open in new window



mail.zip


Warning: require_once(PEAR.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\wamp\www\mail\Mail\mimeDecode.php on line 65


require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'PEAR.php' (include_path='.;C:\Program Files (x86)\NuSphere\PhpED\php5\..\include_lib') in C:\wamp\www\mail\Mail\mimeDecode.php on line 65

You will have to put pear package file in your PHP "include_path" directory. You are receiving this error because PEAR.php is not available in your directory as well as in your PHP include path.

I think it must be path problem. You need to configure the right path there. check out, http://pear.php.net/manual/en/installation.getting.php

Hi,

You will need to follow the below steps:

[1] Install pear package in your system if it is not installed
[2] Edit your php.ini file and add your pear package installation path in include_path like as follow:

include_path='.;C:\Program Files (x86)\NuSphere\PhpED\php5\..\include_lib;c:\pear'

Replace c:\pear with the location of your pear package.

[3] To find your php.ini upload phpinfo() page and check the location for "Loaded Configuration" file path. You will need to edit this php.ini.

[4] After making the changes, restart your web server.

Once you set pear package path in your php configuration, you do not need to modify any files or source. It should include pear module automatically when it is required..

I can not get pear to run on localhost wamp

but I uploaded file and folder to hostgator (which has pear)

 file ran with no errors and echo line number at the end (line 16)

<?php
chdir(dirname(__FILE__));
require_once 'class.email.php';

// Parse incoming email from STDIN
$email = email::parseSTDIN();

//Who sent the message
$sender=($email->getSenderEmail() );
//TheMessage itself
$message = trim($email->getTextContent());
//Who the Message was sent to
$to =  ($email->getRecipientEmail());
//The Subject of the eMail
$subject = ($email->getSubject());
echo __LINE__;

Open in new window
