How to find a function declaration and called places in a big PHP code?

0 votes
34 views

If I am using an editor such as Eclipse to analyze a large PHP system and I want to find the file that a function is declared in then I can search for it. I think that the (right-click) context menu for the function sometimes has an item to open the declaration but that does not always work. The same for an include statement; even if I don't know what the path will be during execution and even if the source is in multiple folders, I can search for the file. For large systems however all that can take time (my time).

Is there a tool that can process thousands (at least a couple thousand) files and produce data of what file that a called function exists in and where a function is called from? In other words, caller/called data. I understand the technical challenges. In PHP includes are processed during execution so I know it might not be possible but I am asking if there is anything that can do it as much as possible.

My ultimate goal is to create a new lock screen for android so I thought that the best way to do that is to modify the source files that already implement the lock screens in android and particularly in android 4.2 or 4.3. I followed the instructions in http://source.android.com/source/building.html and i successfully downloaded and built android 4.3 in my computer. The next step is the modification of some java files. I want to do this with eclipse. I have eclipse 4.3.1 and I am trying to follow the instructions in http://source.android.com/source/using-eclipse.html . The problem is that the instructions are for older version of eclipse and with the new version i cant follow the 5th step as shown below :

  • If Eclipse asks you for a workspace location, choose the default.
  • If you have a "Welcome" screen, close it to reveal the Java perspective.
  • File > New > Java Project
  • Pick a project name, "android" or anything you like.
  • SELECT "CREATE PROJECT FROM EXISTING SOURCE", ENTER THE PATH TO YOUR ANDROID ROOT DIRECTORY, AND CLICK FINISH.
  • Wait while it sets up the project. (You'll see a subtle progress meter in the lower right corner.)

How can I do this correctly in eclipse 4.3.1 ; If i follow the wright steps will I be able to import all android 4.3 in eclipse without showing any errors? Please help me.

I am using the sublime text 2 plugin for PHP Coding Standards Fixer. It is working fine, except for the fact that it considers the namespace invalid (it is in fact invalid and I'm okay with it). this errors halts the script from correcting the rest of the file. I get the following error:

The namespace Application\Controllers\Admin in <filepath> does not match the file path according to PSR-0 rules.

How can I tell the the script to ignore the namespace constraint. Both command line arguments and Sublime text 2 user settings can be changed.

I'm currently writing a paper on the evolution of PHP and web development/security as a whole.
One of the things I want to incorporate is snippets of source code to show how things have grown and advanced since the 90's

If anyone could help me out I would be much appreciated. All my attempts of trying to find it have turned up nothing :(
