The purpose of the db_2_pdo class is to allow developers who rely heavily on PEAR::DB to use PDO in their applications. I was driven to this need when required to use SQLITE 3 and PHP5 for my application, but had already spend countless ours developing with PEAR::DB. This wrapper class and container files can be dropped in with *few* changes required and your application will still function properly. It is by no means a completed project, or a complete replacement, but it can be with your help! I hope that the need for this is temporary, as it would just be alot nicer if PHP5 and SQLite3 worked together. At the moment, however, they do not, so here we are. Look for files shortly.
