There are download sections for PECL extensions in But I am not getting install steps for PECL itself*. Following command does not work -

yum intall pecl

In my system, I have PECL installed, so I can install PECL extensions like this-

pecl install mailparse

But, in a system where running pecl command does not recognize the same, how to install PECL first on a Fedora 7 system (old system).

Seems to me that you should do yum install php-pear to get pecl on your OS, not yum install pecl.
