Working with PHP, PEAR and MAMP
So I am starting to play around with [PEAR](http://pear.php.net “The PHP Extension and Application Repository”) in my PHP development and since I use [MAMP](http://www.mamp.info/ “living-e AG: MAMP – Mac – Apache – MySQL – PHP”) I thought I better brush up on getting these extensions to load via the command line like they show for each extension. Knowing that MAMP works things a little differently than what’s already on my Mac I knew that there would be some trick to getting this to work. A quick Google search brought me to [this article](http://www.gringod.com/2007/02/27/using-mamp-on-a-mac/ “GrinGod [dot] Com » Using MAMP on a Mac”) which taught me just what I needed. Sweet!
