php – Pack and unpack 64 bit integer

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I have the following code:

$packed = pack('i',PHP_INT_MAX);
echo unpack('i', $packed)[1];

As result I get -1

I’m using PHP 5.4.6-1ubuntu1.1 (cli) (built: Nov 15 2012 01:18:34)
and my PHP_INT_MAx is equal to 9223372036854775807

Is there any way to work with pack function and 64 bit integers?

How to&Answers:

Save it as two 32Bit instead:

$value = PHP_INT_MAX;
$highMap = 0xffffffff00000000; 
$lowMap = 0x00000000ffffffff; 
$higher = ($value & $highMap) >>32; 
$lower = $value & $lowMap; 
$packed = pack('NN', $higher, $lower); 

list($higher, $lower) = array_values(unpack('N2', $packed)); 
$originalValue = $higher << 32 | $lower;
