PHP has several new documentation features that the community should be aware of:

  • pman - PHP man pages
    • $ pear install
    • $ pman strlen (this example displays a local textual version of the strlen docs)
  • Enhanced CHM - contains user notes (over 25,000)
  • Online Documentation Editor - allows everyone to edit the PHP manual
    • URL:
    • Every manual page will link to it in the future
    • Includes an IRC window to the #php.doc channel, so let's talk

We hope you find the above features useful, and please write with feedback. Additional features are being refined, which includes a JSON version of the manual.
