phix4componentdev is a meta-package that installs phix itself, and all of the dependencies needed for creating and maintaining PHP components.
phix is a general-purpose, easily-extensible command-line tool for PHP. It has the advantage of being framework-agnostic, allowing you to create your own command-line tools today that will not break when you upgrade or switch frameworks.
phix4componentdev 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.phix-project.org sudo pear -D auto_discover=1 install -Ba phix/phix4componentdev
After installation, you will find phix inside your local PEAR repository, which on Linux systems is normally /usr/share/php.
phix is self-documenting; use 'phix help' to get started.
An online manual is coming soon. You can also see Stuart's blog series on creating PHP components: http://blog.stuartherbert.com/php/php-components/
