how to get my own class as library

Hello all,

I have a class published on www.phpclasses.org and its called Fox_captcha. It is meant by creating captcha verification images.

Its package includes two files, Fox_captcha.php - the class file - and another file called fox_captcha_image.php which generates image for reload the image.

My question how could I able to set it as a library working with CI?

Do you think using it as a helper will be better and how?

I think dealing it as an helper will require a third file inwhich I have to write a function that will able to initiate the object and its methods.

Hi Said,

From my understanding of the user guide, helpers are more limited than libraries. Since you're talking about providing captcha image generation which may/may allow for more/different fonts, languages, etc. in the future, I would think a library would be the best fit.

As for incorporating it as a lib, check the user guide where there is a section with that very subject: http://ellislab.com/codeigniter/user-gui...aries.html

Best wishes.
