I got some serious error while installing expect extension in PHP.

I ran sudo pecl install channel://pecl.php.net/expect-0.3.1

I got error like this while running make,

running: make
/bin/bash /tmp/pear/temp/pear-build-rootvXp7LZ/expect-0.3.1/libtool --mode=compile cc  -I. -I/tmp/pear/temp/expect -DPHP_ATOM_INC -I/tmp/pear/temp/pear-build-rootvXp7LZ/expect-0.3.1/include -I/tmp/pear/temp/pear-build-rootvXp7LZ/expect-0.3.1/main -I/tmp/pear/temp/expect -I/usr/include/php5 -I/usr/include/php5/main -I/usr/include/php5/TSRM -I/usr/include/php5/Zend -I/usr/include/php5/ext -I/usr/include/php5/ext/date/lib  -DHAVE_CONFIG_H  -g -O2   -c /tmp/pear/temp/expect/expect.c -o expect.lo

compilation terminated.
make: *** [expect.lo] Error 1
ERROR: `make' failed

Please advice me as I am a very beginner in PHP.

Thanks.

Which OS/Distro have you using? –  ALex_hha Jul 24 '13 at 5:55

You need to install tcl-dev

# apt-get install tcl-dev

It's my fault, the tcl.h is provided in tcl8.4-dev/tcl8.5-dev

tcl8.4-dev: /usr/include/tcl8.4/tcl.h
tcl8.5-dev: /usr/include/tcl8.5/tcl.h

You can find which package contain tcl.h with apt-file

# apt-file search tcl.h
