All scripts contributed to PEAR must:
Be stored as ASCII text
Use ISO-8859-1 character encoding
Be Unix formatted
"Unix formatted" means two things:
1) Lines must end only with a line feed (LF). Line feeds are represented as ordinal 10, octal 012 and hex 0A. Do not use carriage returns (CR) like Macintosh computers do or the carriage return/line feed combination (CRLF) like Windows computers do.
2) There should be one line feed after the closing PHP tag (?>). This means that when the cursor is at the very end of the file, it should be one line below the closing PHP tag.
