Phar::createDefaultStubCreate a phar-file format specific stub


final public static string Phar::createDefaultStub ([ string $indexfile [, string $webindexfile ]] )

This method is intended for creation of phar-file format-specific stubs, and is not intended for use with tar- or zip-based phar archives.

Phar archives contain a bootstrap loader, or stub written in PHP that is executed when the archive is executed in PHP either via include:

include 'myphar.phar';
or by simple execution:
php myphar.phar

This method provides a simple and easy method to create a stub that will run a startup file from the phar archive. In addition, different files can be specified for running the phar archive from the command line versus through a web server. The loader stub also calls Phar::interceptFileFuncs() to allow easy bundling of a PHP application that accesses the file system. If the phar extension is not present, the loader stub will extract the phar archive to a temporary directory and then operate on the files. A shutdown function erases the temporary files on exit.

Return Values

Returns a string containing the contents of a customized bootstrap loader (stub) that allows the created Phar archive to work with or without the Phar extension enabled.


Throws UnexpectedValueException if either parameter is longer than 400 bytes.
