This is most likely not a homebrew-php problem, but I can't seen to find any mention of this issue out there. Just wondering if anyone has a thought on this.

I am running homebrew-php php 5.3.21 and have confirmed that I am using the homebrew-php pear. After I run pear install PHP_CodeSniffer, I do not see it in the list of installed packages with pear list. I am pretty sure it use to appear there. Another related issue is that pear uninstall PHP_CodeSniffer results in pear telling me that PHP_Code Sniffer is not installed.

phpcs is working for me, but I think it is odd that I can't list or uninstall it via pear. Thanks.

It's installed via homebrew, so it probably isn't under the pear directories, thus not detected. Maybe we should just add a message to the post-install about that?

Yeah, it would be listed or uninstalled with pear, but you can list or uninstall it with homebrew :D

Thanks for the info. I think I found my issue. I had php53 and php54 installed. pear was set to look at php54's php.ini. When I switched that, PHP_CodeSniffer is showing up quite fine. Thanks man!
