MongoDB\BSON\toPHP

(mongodb >=1.0.0)

MongoDB\BSON\toPHPReturns the PHP representation of a BSON value

Description

MongoDB\BSON\toPHP(string $bson, array $typeMap = array()): array|object

Unserializes a BSON document (i.e. binary string) to its PHP representation. The typeMap paramater may be used to control the PHP types used for converting BSON arrays and documents (both root and embedded).

Warning

BSON documents can technically contain duplicate keys because documents are stored as a list of key-value pairs; however, applications should refrain from generating documents with duplicate keys as server and driver behavior may be undefined. Since PHP objects and arrays cannot have duplicate keys, data could also be lost when decoding a BSON document with duplicate keys.

Parameters

bson (string)

BSON value to be unserialized.

typeMap (array)

Type map configuration.

Return Values

The unserialized PHP value.

Errors/Exceptions

Changelog

Version Description
PECL mongodb 1.4.0

If the input contains an unsupported, deprecated BSON type, the driver will now no longer log a warning to the debug log, but instead will create an object representing this type.

PECL mongodb 1.3.2

MongoDB\Driver\Exception\UnexpectedValueException is no longer thrown if the input contains an unsupported, deprecated BSON type. Such types will be ignored (as they were in versions before 1.3.0), although the driver will now log a warning to the debug log (see: mongodb.debug).

PECL mongodb 1.3.0

MongoDB\Driver\Exception\UnexpectedValueException is thrown if the input contains an unsupported, deprecated BSON type. Previously, such types were ignored.

Examples

Example #1 MongoDB\BSON\toPHP() example

<?php

$bson 
hex2bin('0e00000010666f6f000100000000');
$value MongoDB\BSON\toPHP($bson);
var_dump($value);

?>

The above example will output:

object(stdClass)#1 (1) {
  ["foo"]=>
  int(1)
}
