Note, that this method accepts _everything_ (=> returns 'true'), when $executable is 'false' as long as the filename contains at least a dot
This is not wrong at all, because I can name an archive like I want, but it makes the method completely useless (when $executable == false).

Phar::isValidPharFilename — Returns whether the given filename is a valid phar filename
$executable= true ] )
Returns whether the given filename is a valid phar filename that will be recognized as a phar archive by the phar extension. This can be used to test a name without having to instantiate a phar archive and catch the inevitable Exception that will be thrown if an invalid name is specified.
The name or full path to a phar archive not yet created
This parameter determines whether the filename should be treated as a phar executable archive, or a data non-executable archive
TRUE if the filename is valid,
FALSE if not.
