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


The best documentation for ExtenderLib 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.
