We give characterizations of $P$-frames and extremally disconnected $P$-frames based on ring-theoretic features of the ring of continuous real- valued functions on a frame $L$, i.e. $\mathcal RL$. It is shown that $L$ is a $P$-frame if and only if $\mathcal RL$ is an $\aleph_0$-self-injective ring. Consequently for pseudocompact frames if $\mathcal RL$ is $\aleph_0$-self-injective, then $L$ is finite. We also prove that $L$ is an extremally disconnected $P$-frame iff $\mathcal{R}L$ is a self-injective ring iff $\mathcal{R}L$ is a Baer regular ring iff $\mathcal{R}L$ is a continuous regular ring iff $\mathcal{R}L$ is a complete regular ring.
