wget http://pear.php.net/go-pear.phar
sudo ./go-pear.phar

The installer shows you a list of suggested path (in my case, they were all prefixed with the path to my user’s home directory).
I didn’t agree with the suggested solution. To modify this :
I chose [1] and changed the path prefix to /usr/local/pear and continued installation.
Next, I edited my zshrc (or .bashrc) to update my PATH and include the path to pear.
You can make sure that the path is updated and that pear is found with :

source ~/.zshrc
which pear

    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.
