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.

Bug #16869

------------------------------------------------------------------------

To solve this problem simply remove the & on the lines 186 and 195
or 180 and 189 (In release 0.9.2).

On http://php.net/manual/en/language.references.whatdo.php is showed:

"Since PHP 5, new returns a reference automatically, so using =& in
this context is deprecated and produces an E_STRICT message."

The current package will remain PHP4 backward compatible that's why only
some of these problem can be fixed. We are thinking of releasing a
Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer2 package in the future with PHP5 and up
compatibility.
Any way to maintain a separate 5.3 compatible branch? I was going to
just stick up a patched version on my blog for people to download for
now but is that the best solution?

I'm sure theres a decent reason behind it, but couldn't people not
upgrading to PHP5 just use an older version of Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer
so the rest of us can benefit? ;)
