I planned on releasing some PHP Application and I just wanted to make sure it was ok using the PEAR library.

I am assuming I will need to part out the components separately but I just wanted to make sure.

Thanks

I think there would be no problem since PEAR is free. You will have to credit the authors maybe.

I think you should do both things. A deep documentation is going to be needed since not everyone knows PEAR .

That’s right, you’ll have to detail what kind of hosting is neccesary.

As long as the license permits, you can use whatever library/framework you want. If you’re creating a small integratable PHP script then I don’t suggest using a framework; most buyers prefer stand-alone solutions with minimal dependencies in these situations. But, on the other hand, if you’re creating an entire “solution” (e.g. an invoicing application) then using a framework is probably the wise thing to do…
