terminalAlexandre blogged last week about how to install pman and add a contextual help within VI for PHP functions. Tthis post is merely a quick note of the procedure. I like the speed of pman as opposed to browsing php.net. I didn’t install the VI part, I use Textmate these days.

The procedure is actually straight forward: add the doc.php.net channel to pear then install pman

1
2
3
pear channel-discover doc.php.net

pear install doc.php.net/pman

If everything went fine, try

1
pman substr

Thanks to @alheim for the tip!

    I enjoy playing with my computer(s), listening to Bob Dylan (and related artists) and watching movies (especially if they were directed by Martin Scorsese or John Cassavetes). Sometimes, I play a little guitar... If not doing any of the above, I am either riding a small red bike around Paris, or, making videos. About my videomaking please check out World Wide Angle and its blog.
