Phar::compressFiles

(PHP >= 5.3.0, PECL phar >= 2.0.0)

Phar::compressFilesCompresses all files in the current Phar archive

Description

public void Phar::compressFiles ( int $compression )

Note:

This method requires the php.ini setting phar.readonly to be set to 0 in order to work for Phar objects. Otherwise, a PharException will be thrown.

For tar-based phar archives, this method throws a BadMethodCallException, as compression of individual files within a tar archive is not supported by the file format. Use Phar::compress() to compress an entire tar-based phar archive.

For Zip-based and phar-based phar archives, this method compresses all files in the Phar archive using the specified compression. The zlib or bzip2 extensions must be enabled to take advantage of this feature. In addition, if any files are already compressed using bzip2/zlib compression, the respective extension must be enabled in order to decompress the files prior to re-compressing. As with all functionality that modifies the contents of a phar, the phar.readonly INI variable must be off in order to succeed.

Parameters

compression

Compression must be one of Phar::GZ, Phar::BZ2 to add compression, or Phar::NONE to remove compression.

Return Values

No value is returned.

Errors/Exceptions

Throws BadMethodCallException if the phar.readonly INI variable is on, the zlib extension is not available, or if any files are compressed using bzip2 compression and the bzip2 extension is not enabled.

Examples

Example #1 A Phar::compressFiles() example

<?php
$p 
= new Phar('/path/to/my.phar'0'my.phar');
$p['myfile.txt'] = 'hi';
$p['myfile2.txt'] = 'hi';
foreach (
$p as $file) {
    
var_dump($file->getFileName());
    
var_dump($file->isCompressed());
    
var_dump($file->isCompressed(Phar::BZ2));
    
var_dump($file->isCompressed(Phar::GZ));
}
$p->compressFiles(Phar::GZ);
foreach (
$p as $file) {
    
var_dump($file->getFileName());
    
var_dump($file->isCompressed());
    
var_dump($file->isCompressed(Phar::BZ2));
    
var_dump($file->isCompressed(Phar::GZ));
}
?>

The above example will output:

string(10) "myfile.txt"
bool(false)
bool(false)
bool(false)
string(11) "myfile2.txt"
bool(false)
bool(false)
bool(false)
string(10) "myfile.txt"
int(4096)
bool(false)
bool(true)
string(11) "myfile2.txt"
int(4096)
bool(false)
bool(true)
