Thanks for that Ralph, and David, it just seemed to me that it would
have been the ( one of ) first adapter ( even if it were to be
deprecated) to get built, I totally understand what your saying and
luckily for me I finally pursuaded our host to enable it on our server
( i know, why wasn't it enabled neway? ) . I know it may just be I
have inherited a substandard host but i was just curious to why ZF
left it out, now I understand. This is why ZF community is the best,
and the best FW by far, and that's not too biased cos I've dabbled
with Cake, Symphony , et al.
