 * PHP Phar - How to create and use a Phar archive

$p = new Phar('my.phar', FilesystemIterator::CURRENT_AS_FILEINFO | FilesystemIterator::KEY_AS_FILENAME, 'my.phar');
//issue the Phar::startBuffering() method call to buffer changes made to the archive until you issue the Phar::stopBuffering() command

//set the Phar file stub
//the file stub is merely a small segment of code that gets run initially when the Phar file is loaded, 
//and it always ends with a __HALT_COMPILER() 
$p->setStub('<?php Phar::mapPhar(); include "phar://my.phar/index.php"; __HALT_COMPILER(); ?>');

//Adding files to the archive
$p['text.txt'] = 'This is a text file';
//Adding files to an archive using Phar::buildFromDirectory()
//adds all of the PHP files in the stated directory to the Phar archive
$p->buildFromDirectory('include/', '$(.*)\.php$');

//Stop buffering write requests to the Phar archive, and save changes to disk
echo "my.phar archive has been saved";
