remove a file from a phar ()
bool Phar::offsetUnset ( string offset )

This is an implementation of the ArrayAccess interface allowing direct manipulation of the contents of a Phar archive using array access brackets. offsetUnset is used for deleting an existing file, and is called by the unset() language construct.



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

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.


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 1811. A Phar::offsetUnset() example

= new Phar('/path/to/my.phar', 0, 'my.phar');
try {
// deletes file.txt from my.phar by calling offsetUnset
} catch (
Exception $e) {
'Could not delete file.txt: ', $e;
