The package theseer/tokenizer, facilitated by a PHP expert, is a small, compact library that is proficient in converting tokenized PHP source code into XML, and potentially to more formats. It generates a structured XML representation of the tokenized source code which can be used for a variety of purposes including code analysis.
The use of the theseer/tokenizer library is simple and straightforward. It involves instantiating objects from the library's classes and utilizing their methods accordingly.
Firstly, you'll need to add this library to your project. Use Composer, a tool for dependency management in PHP, to install the theseer/tokenizer package, as follows:
composer require theseer/tokenizer
Or, if you need the library only for development purposes:
composer require --dev theseer/tokenizer
Now, you are ready to leverage the theseer/tokenizer in your PHP code:
$tokenizer = new TheSeer\Tokenizer\Tokenizer(); $tokens = $tokenizer->parse(file_get_contents(__DIR__ . '/src/XMLSerializer.php')); $serializer = new TheSeer\Tokenizer\XMLSerializer(); $xml = $serializer->toXML($tokens); echo $xml;
In this example, 'Tokenizer' class is used to tokenize the source code obtained from 'XMLSerializer.php'. Then 'XMLSerializer' class is employed to convert these tokens into an XML format.
Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a dedicated documentation page for theseer/tokenizer. The main source of guidance and details about the library is the README file in the GitHub repository (https://github.com/theseer/tokenizer.git). You may find further insights by examining the source code or through raising queries in the project's GitHub discussion or issues page.
