Description Hans-Henry Jakobsen 2002-10-10 10:57:43 UTC
With mcal support, a calendar stream can be opened much like the mailbox stream with the IMAP 
support. Calendars can be local file stores, remote ICAP servers, or other formats that are 
supported by the mcal library.

This extension requires the mcal library to 
be installed. Grab the latest version from and compile and install 

After you installed the mcal library, to get these functions to work, you 
have to compile PHP with --with-mcal.

Hmm .. this is not working for me. I am sorry if this is my fault, but I cannot find any reference to mcal either in dev-php/php nor dev-php/mod_php. Thus I've made a patch for php and one for mod_php which adds support for mcal. I suggest that a new useflag is introduced in order to controll the use of mcal, nevertheless I have not used such a flag in my patches.

you said this is commited, but I don't see it the CVS at all. So I've reopened this for now. 

I'll commit the code nessecary if you need after testing it out on the latest version of PHP.

added in new PHP eclass.
Still need to propose the USE flag on -core/-dev.
