# PHP Bindings
-There are two different PHP bindings (extensions) available. None of them is complete but both should be sufficient to do the basic stuff.
+PECL cairo is the official Cairo Graphics Library binding. It provides an object oriented and procedural interface for the cairo library.
+Support is currently provided for 1.4 to 1.8 versions of the library (1.10 is partially supported). The extension is available for PHP 5.2.0 and higher only. The package can be found at <http://pecl.php.net/package/cairo>
+The extension has the majority of items wrapped, still missing are some font backends (Quartz and User), and system specific surfaces (win32, Quartz and Xlib)
+PECL cairo can be installed on linux and unix systems with PEAR installed using the command
+pecl install cairo
+PECL cairo is available from PHP subversion.
+And releases are available from the PECL package page.
+<http://php.net/cairo> has partial documentation. For more information, refer to the [cairo manual](http://cairographics.org/manual/). Most of its content is directly applicable to the PHP extension as well.
+# Other Extensions
+There are two additional PHP bindings (extensions) available that are superceded by PECL cairo. Neither of them is complete but both should be sufficient to do the basic stuff.
