Sebastian Bergmann's Blog:
Using HipHop for Static Analysis
Jul 27, 2010 @ 10:13:51

In a new blog entry today Sebastian Bergmann quickly shows a method of performing some code analysis on code transformed by HipHop for PHP.

HipHop for PHP, the source code transformer that turns PHP code into C++ code that can then be compiled with g++, can also be used for static code analysis to find problems in PHP source code.

He includes a script that creates an XML document that both Checkstyle and PHP_CodeSniffer can use to check for a valid format on his sample "CodeErrors.js" file. He includes the script to create this XML file.
