This bug has been fixed in SVN.

If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on
pear.php.net by the end of next Sunday (CET).

If this was a problem with the pear.php.net website, the change should
be live shortly.

Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release.

Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.

Thanks a lot for the patch! Confirmed that fixed it on XP and the fix
will be included
in PEAR 1.9.1

Fixed in pear.bat changed quoting of include_path directive at the end
of the file to


The double quotes get it through the windows shell and the single
quotes are used by php.

The actual line now reads.

"%PHP_PEAR_PHP_BIN%" -C -d output_buffering=1 -d safe_mode=0 -d
open_basedir="" -d auto_prepend_file="" -d auto_append_file="" -d
variables_order=EGPCS -d register_argc_argv="On" -d
"include_path='%PHP_PEAR_INSTALL_DIR%'" -f
"%PHP_PEAR_INSTALL_DIR%\pearcmd.php" -- %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

When installed under C:\Program Files (x86)\ pear returns syntax error
because the include_path directive is not properly quoted

Test script:
C:\Program Files(x86)\Zend\ZendServer\bin>pear

Expected result:
list of commands....

Actual result:
Alert box form php thrown -
Syntax Error, unexpected '(' in Unknown on Line 14
