CDirectoryCacheDependency represents a dependency based on change of a directory.

CDirectoryCacheDependency performs dependency checking based on the modification time of the files contained in the specified directory. The directory being checked is specified via directory.

By default, all files under the specified directory and subdirectories will be checked. If the last modification time of any of them is changed or if different number of files are contained in a directory, the dependency is reported as changed. By specifying recursiveLevel, one can limit the checking to a certain depth of the directory.

Note, dependency checking for a directory is expensive because it involves accessing modification time of multiple files under the directory.

Property Details

directory property
public string $directory;

the directory whose change is used to determine if the dependency has been changed. If any of the files under the directory is changed, the dependency is considered as changed.

namePattern property
public string $namePattern;

the regular expression matching valid file/directory names. Only the matching files or directories will be checked for changes. Defaults to null, meaning all files/directories will qualify.

recursiveLevel property
public integer $recursiveLevel;

the depth of the subdirectories to be recursively checked. If the value is less than 0, it means unlimited depth. If the value is 0, it means checking the files directly under the specified directory.

Method Details

__construct() method
public void __construct(string $directory=NULL)
$directory string the directory to be checked

Constructor.

generateDependentData() method
protected mixed generateDependentData()
{return} mixed the data needed to determine if dependency has been changed.

Generates the data needed to determine if dependency has been changed. This method returns the modification timestamps for files under the directory.

generateTimestamps() method
protected array generateTimestamps(string $directory, int $level=0)
$directory string the directory name
$level int level of the recursion
{return} array list of file modification time indexed by the file path

Determines the last modification time for files under the directory. This method may go recursively into subdirectories if recursiveLevel is not 0.

validateDirectory() method
protected boolean validateDirectory(string $directory)
$directory string the name of the subdirectory that may be checked for dependency.
{return} boolean whether this subdirectory should be checked.

Checks to see if the specified subdirectory should be checked for dependency. This method is invoked when dependency of the whole directory is being checked. By default, it always returns true, meaning the subdirectory should be checked. You may override this method to check only certain subdirectories.

validateFile() method
protected boolean validateFile(string $fileName)
$fileName string the name of the file that may be checked for dependency.
{return} boolean whether this file should be checked.

Checks to see if the file should be checked for dependency. This method is invoked when dependency of the whole directory is being checked. By default, it always returns true, meaning the file should be checked. You may override this method to check only certain files.
