Problem with pear functions

Postby vinodkalpaka » Sat Jul 30, 2005 1:01 am


I am new to php program. I have a doubt about pear packages in PHP.
I have downloaded the pear packages through the command prompt line 'php go-pear.php' and installed it.
I could work with some examples for XML-RPC and give the correct output.
But when I try to work with an image example it give me the following error.

Warning: main(Image/Canvas.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in E:\ImageTest ,Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required 'Image/Canvas.php' .

Why did this happened? In the pear package list I could find zip files like DB-1.7.6,Net_Socket-1.0.6,XML_RPC-1.3.3,PHPUnit-1.2.3,Mail-1.1.6, Mail-1.1.6 and XML_Parser-1.2.6 etc.. But I could not find any files related to Image. Should I install any GD library for image functions in PHP other than pear package.

Please help me.
Thanking in advance

Problem with pear functions

Postby rakeshyadav » Tue Feb 15, 2011 10:44 pm

Hi all,

I am using PEAR classes to export my reports to excel i have some problem with open office wile exporting bitmap images.

i keep my PEAR files in /app/vendors/Pear

and my view file to export image to excel is


$workbook = new Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer();





$worksheet->insertBitmap ( 0 , 5, '/tmp/shoprite1.bmp',0, 0, 1.25, 1);




The code i mention above is good while working with MS Office (i am able to view the image). but problem with Open office i am not able to view image it is showing blank cell. Here i am using 24bit bitmap image (as per PEAR Instructions).

Any suggestions thank full.

Thanks &Regards
