Archive_Tar::create() -- create archive file


This method creates the archive file and adds the listed files or directories.

If a file with the same tar name exists and is writable, it is replaced by the new tar archive (it is not an 'add', but a 'create'). If a file exists and is write-protected or is a folder, the method raises a PEAR_Error.


  • mixed $filelist - an array of filenames and directory names, or a single string with names separated by a single blank space. For each directory added in the archive, the files and sub-directories are also added.

Return value

boolean - Returns TRUE on success, FALSE on failure.


This function can not be called statically.
