<h3>Features</h3>

[`shared.phar`](finfo?name=shared.phar) is a streets ahead PHP autoloader.

  *  Self-contained in a single compressed [phar](https://php.net/phar)
  *  Based on a class map
  *  Can be [updated easily](wiki/update) by invoking it from the command line
  *  ***Phar collections** become first class citizens*
  *  Interprets identifiers case-insensitively (as PHP does)
  *  *Tokenizes* plain `*.php` and `phar://*` includes for identifier declarations
  *  Is meant for `/usr/share/php` handling, but can be used project-locally
  *  Prepares [rfc:function_autoloading](https://wiki.php.net/rfc/function_autoloading) userland support
  *  Indifferent to PSR-0/4 constraints, works atop *any* legacy or custom directory scheme
  *  The phar may also be [split up](wiki/split)

And it's public domain.


### Usage

It can be [utilized](wiki/include_once) easily with:

     include_once("shared.phar");

And [updated](wiki/update) manually on the command line:

     php ./shared.phar

Or implicitly on development setups by declaring an [`AUTOLOADER_UPDATE`](wiki/AUTOLOADER_UPDATE) environment variable.
