Binary package “php5-gd” in ubuntu maverick
GD module for php5
This package provides a module for handling graphics directly from PHP
scripts. It supports the PNG, JPEG, XPM formats as well as Freetype/ttf fonts.
PHP5 is an HTML-embedded scripting language. Much of its syntax is borrowed
from C, Java and Perl with a couple of unique PHP-specific features thrown
in. The goal of the language is to allow web developers to write dynamically
generated pages quickly. This version of PHP5 was built with the Suhosin patch.
