Executing a phar file

The run_phar() function

The run_phar() function provides a way to execute a phar file in all scenarios, whether castor is executed as a phar, as a static binary, or as a script.

function exec_something()
    run_phar('path/to/my.phar', ['arg1', 'arg2']);

This allow to execute external php script even if you don't have PHP when using the static binary and without conflicts between the external script and internal php code of Castor.

The run_phar() takes exactly the same options as the run() function.
