Description Author

This class can be used for creating wizard-like pages, for instance, for installing applications.

It can generate wizards with multiple pages with installation progress feedback and standard buttons to go to the next page, previous page, cancel the installation task. There is also a subclass that makes it display a splash screen page.

It can perform several types of standard installation tasks creating directories, copy files and install databases. Database support requires either ADO DB or PEAR DB libraries.

NOTE: please contact me if this class does not seem to work correctly with PHP5.

Installing PHP applications is often a multi-step task. It may involve tasks of many types like creating directories, copying files, generating configuration files.

This class can help building PHP installation scripts that guide the user through a multi-page graphical interface, making it simple to understand and accomplish complex installations by users without great technical skills.
