SYNOPSIS

phar [options] ...

extract command

Extract a PHAR package to a directory. Required arguments: -f file Specifies the phar file to work on. Optional arguments: -i regex Specifies a regular expression for input files. -x regex Regular expression for input files to exclude. ... Directory to extract to (defaults to '.').

help command

This help or help for a selected command. Optional arguments: ... Optional command to retrieve help for.

help-list command

Lists available commands.

info command

Get information about a PHAR package. By using -k it is possible to return a single value. Required arguments: -f file Specifies the phar file to work on. Optional arguments: -k index Subscription index to work on.

list command

List contents of a PHAR archive. Required arguments: -f file Specifies the phar file to work on. Optional arguments: -i regex Specifies a regular expression for input files. -x regex Regular expression for input files to exclude.

pack command

Pack files into a PHAR archive. When using -s , then the stub file is being excluded from the list of input files/dirs.To create an archive that contains PEAR class PHP_Archive then point -p argument to PHP/Archive.php. Required arguments: -f file Specifies the phar file to work on. ... Any number of input files and directories. If -i is in use then ONLY files and matching the given regular ex‐ pression are being packed. If -x is given then files matching that regular expression are NOT being packed. Optional arguments: -a alias Provide an alias name for the phar file. -b bang Hash-bang line to start the archive (e.g. #!/usr/bin/php). The hash mark itself '#!' and the new‐ line character are optional. -c algo Compression algorithm (see COMPRESSION ) -h hash Selects the hash algorithm (see HASH ) -i regex Specifies a regular expression for input files. -l level Number of preceding subdirectories to strip from file entries -p loader Location of PHP_Archive class file (pear list-files PHP_Archive).You can use '0' or '1' to locate it auto‐ matically using the mentioned pear command. When using '0' the command does not error out when the class file cannot be located. This switch also adds some code around the stub so that class PHP_Archive gets regis‐ tered as phar:// stream wrapper if necessary. And fi‐ nally this switch will add the file phar.inc from this package and load it to ensure class Phar is present. -s stub Select the stub file. -x regex Regular expression for input files to exclude. -y key Private key for OpenSSL signing.

sign command

Set signature hash algorithm. Required arguments: -f file Specifies the phar file to work on. -h hash Selects the hash algorithm (see HASH ) Optional arguments: -y key Private key for OpenSSL signing.

stub-get command

Get the stub of a PHAR file. If no output file is specified as stub then stdout is being used. Required arguments: -f file Specifies the phar file to work on. Optional arguments: -s stub Select the stub file.

stub-set command

Set the stub of a PHAR file. If no input file is specified as stub then stdin is being used. Required arguments: -f file Specifies the phar file to work on. Optional arguments: -b bang Hash-bang line to start the archive (e.g. #!/usr/bin/php). The hash mark itself '#!' and the new‐ line character are optional. -p loader Location of PHP_Archive class file (pear list-files PHP_Archive).You can use '0' or '1' to locate it auto‐ matically using the mentioned pear command. When using '0' the command does not error out when the class file cannot be located. This switch also adds some code around the stub so that class PHP_Archive gets regis‐ tered as phar:// stream wrapper if necessary. And fi‐ nally this switch will add the file phar.inc from this package and load it to ensure class Phar is present. -s stub Select the stub file.

meta-del command

Delete meta information of a PHAR entry or a PHAR package. If -k is given then the metadata is expected to be an array and the given index is being deleted. If something was deleted the return value is 0 otherwise it is 1. Required arguments: -f file Specifies the phar file to work on. Optional arguments: -e entry Name of entry to work on (must include PHAR internal di‐ rectory name if any). -k index Subscription index to work on.

meta-get command

Get meta information of a PHAR entry or a PHAR package in serialized from. If no output file is specified for meta data then stdout is being used. You can also specify a particular index using -k. In that case the metadata is expected to be an array and the value of the given in‐ dex is returned using echo rather than using serialize. If that index does not exist or no meta data is present then the return value is 1. Required arguments: -f file Specifies the phar file to work on. Optional arguments: -e entry Name of entry to work on (must include PHAR internal di‐ rectory name if any). -k index Subscription index to work on.

meta-set command

Set meta data of a PHAR entry or a PHAR package using serialized input. If no input file is specified for meta data then stdin is being used. You can also specify a particular index using -k. In that case the metadata is expected to be an array and the value of the given index is being set. If the metadata is not present or empty a new array will be created. If the metadata is present and a flat value then the return value is 1. Also using -k the input is been taken directly rather then being serialized. Required arguments: -f file Specifies the phar file to work on. -m meta Meta data to store with entry (serialized php data). Optional arguments: -e entry Name of entry to work on (must include PHAR internal di‐ rectory name if any). -k index Subscription index to work on.

tree command

Get a directory tree for a PHAR archive. Required arguments: -f file Specifies the phar file to work on. Optional arguments: -i regex Specifies a regular expression for input files. -x regex Regular expression for input files to exclude.

version command

Get information about the PHAR environment and the tool version.

DESCRIPTION

The PHAR file format provides a way to put entire PHP applications into a single file called a "phar" (PHP Archive) for easy distribution and installation. With the phar command you can create, update or extract PHP archives. Commands: add compress delete extract help help-list info list meta-del meta-get meta-set pack sign stub-get stub-set tree version

add command

Add entries to a PHAR package. Required arguments: -f file Specifies the phar file to work on. ... Any number of input files and directories. If -i is in use then ONLY files and matching the given regular ex‐ pression are being packed. If -x is given then files matching that regular expression are NOT being packed. Optional arguments: -a alias Provide an alias name for the phar file. -c algo Compression algorithm (see COMPRESSION ) -i regex Specifies a regular expression for input files. -l level Number of preceding subdirectories to strip from file entries -x regex Regular expression for input files to exclude.
