@sanduhrs Fixed checksums. Got bitten by old-version/same-name *.phar in build dir.

@KingCrunch I've switched this package to use PHAR instead of using PEAR. Thanks for the pointer. Please test.

@KingCrunch I haven't used this personally for a while. Do you refer to/what do you think of the: 'php pyrus.phar install pear/PHP_CodeSniffer' method that's suggested on

I've seen the same issue and yes, adjusting the include_path should solve my problem. Is there's a reason you don't use the PHAR distribution? It contains all required dependencies, thus there is no need to change system settings to get things working.

No, but thanks for update.
My error can be fixed by setting:
include_path = ".:/usr/share/pear"
in php.ini.

Thanks for your reply :)

Updated to latest stable v2.5.0
@Alphanumerix: does this fix your problem?

With newest php available in repo (7.0.2) I've error posted below:

PHP Warning: include_once(PHP/CodeSniffer/CLI.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /usr/bin/phpcs on line 21
PHP Warning: include_once(): Failed opening 'PHP/CodeSniffer/CLI.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:') in /usr/bin/phpcs on line 21
PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Class 'PHP_CodeSniffer_CLI' not found in /usr/bin/phpcs:24
Stack trace:
#0 {main}
thrown in /usr/bin/phpcs on line 24

I believe it's related to this error from 2016-01-04 04:55 posted here:
Error in post above is fixed now (or at least it's not occurring on my box).

@biinari weird, should be fixed now

Looks like the sha256sum is incorrect (perhaps upstream re-submitted to PEAR)
