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.

1. Use DIR /X to find out the 8+3 name of the folder.
2. Set it with config-set, e.g.:

pear config-set temp_dir "C:\ARCHIV~1\PHP\tmp"

Setting 'pear config-set temp_dir
"C:\Users\MyUserName\AppData\Local\Temp" ' helps, but you have to set it

In file PEAR/System.php

function _parseArgs($argv, $short_options, $long_options = null)
if (!is_array($argv) && $argv !== null) {
$argv = preg_split('/\s+/', $argv, -1,
return Console_Getopt::getopt2($argv, $short_options);

If $argv contains something like "-t X:\path\to\PHP 5.3\tmp -d pear" ,
then it will split on space in "PHP 5.3".

Test script:
$args = "-t R:\applications\PHP 5.3\tmp -d pear";
$opts = System::_parseArgs($args, 't:d');
var_dump( $opts );

Expected result:
i have no idea

Actual result:
array(2) {
array(1) {
array(2) {
string(1) "t"
string(19) "R:\applications\PHP"
array(3) {
string(7) "5.3\tmp"
string(2) "-d"
string(4) "pear"
