set the contents of an internal file to those of an external file ()
void Phar::offsetSet ( string offset, string value )

This is an implementation of the ArrayAccess interface allowing direct manipulation of the contents of a Phar archive using array access brackets. offsetSet is used for modifying an existing file, or adding a new file to a Phar archive.



The filename (relative path) to modify in a Phar.


Content of the file.

Return Values

No return values.


if phar.readonly is 1, BadMethodCallException is thrown, as modifying a Phar is only allowed when phar.readonly is set to 0. Throws PharException if there are any problems flushing changes made to the Phar archive to disk.


Example 1810. A Phar::offsetSet() example

offsetSet should not be accessed directly, but instead used via array access with the [] operator.

= new Phar('/path/to/my.phar', 0, 'my.phar');
try {
// calls offsetSet
$p['file.txt'] = 'Hi there';
} catch (
Exception $e) {
'Could not modify file.txt:', $e;
