Return Values

A PharFileInfo object is returned that can be used to iterate over a file's contents or to retrieve information about the current file.


This method throws BadMethodCallException if the file does not exist in the Phar archive.


Example #1 A Phar::offsetGet() example

As with all classes that implement the ArrayAccess interface, offsetGet is automatically called when using the [] angle bracket operator

= new Phar(dirname(__FILE__) . '/myphar.phar'0'myphar.phar');
$p['exists.txt'] = "file exists\n";
try {
// automatically calls offsetGet()
echo $p['exists.txt'];
} catch (
BadMethodCallException $e) {

The above example will output:

file exists
Entry doesnotexist.txt does not exist
