Description: ------------ Fatal error: Cannot call __clone() method on objects - use 'clone $obj' instead in Compat\Function\clone.php on line 31 Actual result: -------------- Code: if (method_exists($object, '__clone')) { $object->__clone(); }

From this bug report, it looks like they've made __clone private and removed PHP5's clone() function? If that's the case then there's no backward compatible solution ... thoughts?

What code are you using to replicate this error?

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better. It's not just private, you can't call it from within the same class even. Oddly using a variable function call, e.g. $func = '__clone'; $object->$func(); does work, I've committed that dodge but we should keep an eye on this.
