RarEntry::isDirectoryTest whether an entry represents a directory


public bool RarEntry::isDirectory ( void )

Tests whether the current entry is a directory.


This function has no parameters.

Return Values

Returns TRUE if this entry is a directory and FALSE otherwise.


This function is only available starting with version 2.0.0, but one can also test whether an entry is a directory by checking the entry attributes, like this (only works for files compressed in RAR for Windows or Unix):

//Open file, get entry and store in variable $e...

$isDirectory = (bool) ((($e->getHostOs() == RAR_HOST_WIN32) && ($e->getAttr() & 0x10)) ||
$e->getHostOs() == RAR_HOST_UNIX) && (($e->getAttr() & 0xf000) == 0x4000)));
