Phar::extractTo

(Unknown)

Phar::extractToExtract the contents of a phar archive to a directory

Description

public bool Phar::extractTo ( string $pathto [, string|array $files [, bool $overwrite = false ]] )

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.

Extract all files within a phar archive to disk. Extracted files and directories preserve permissions as stored in the archive. The optional parameters allow optional control over which files are extracted, and whether existing files on disk can be overwritten. The second parameter files can be either the name of a file or directory to extract, or an array of names of files and directories to extract. By default, this method will not overwrite existing files, the third parameter can be set to true to enable overwriting of files. This method is similar to ZipArchive::extractTo().

Parameters

pathto

Path within an archive to the file to delete.

files

The name of a file or directory to extract, or an array of files/directories to extract

overwrite

Set to TRUE to enable overwriting existing files

Return Values

Errors/Exceptions

Throws PharException if errors occur while flushing changes to disk.
