Working with PHP, PEAR and MAMP

So I am starting to play around with [PEAR]( “The PHP Extension and Application Repository”) in my PHP development and since I use [MAMP]( “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]( “GrinGod [dot] Com » Using MAMP on a Mac”) which taught me just what I needed. Sweet!
