PEAR is the PHP Extension and Application Repository. It is a library of PHP code packages, including a database class which can be used as an abstracted interface to MySQL (and other database management systems). PEAR packages are easy to install, and align to a coding standard which makes the open-source model a little easier on new developers. See for more details.
