Description: ------------ When using install_pear.php in PHP 7.2.0alpha1 to install PEAR, Archive_Tar fails with the error: PHP Fatal error: Cannot use result of built-in function in write context in /builddir/build/BUILD/php72w-pear-1.10.4/Archive/Tar.php on line 662 This appears to be due to the use of by-reference on a built-in function, which PHP 7.2 has probably changed. $v_att_list = & func_get_args();

This bug has been fixed in SVN. 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.
