ValidationLib is a lightweight collection of classes for validating data. It is inspired by Zend_Validation, but put on a much-needed diet :)

System-Wide Installation

ValidationLib should be installed using the PEAR Installer. This installer is the community's de-facto standard for distributing PHP components.

sudo pear channel-discover pear.gradwell.com
sudo pear install --alldeps Gradwell/ValidationLib

After installation, you will find ValidationLib inside your local PEAR repository, which on Linux systems is normally /usr/share/php.


The best documentation for ValidationLib are the unit tests, which are shipped in the package. You will find them installed into your PEAR repository, which on Linux systems is normally /usr/share/php/test.
