PHP Manual :: token_get_all



Tokenizer Functions || token_name || PHP Manual

(PHP 4 >= 4.2.0, PHP 5, PHP 7)

token_get_allSplit given source into PHP tokens

Description

array token_get_all ( string $source [, int $flags = 0 ] )

token_get_all() parses the given source string into PHP language tokens using the Zend engine's lexical scanner.

For a list of parser tokens, see List of Parser Tokens, or use token_name() to translate a token value into its string representation.

Parameters

source

The PHP source to parse.

flags

Valid flags:

  • TOKEN_PARSE - Recognises the ability to use reserved words in specific contexts.

Return Values

An array of token identifiers. Each individual token identifier is either a single character (i.e.: ;, ., >, !, etc...), or a three element array containing the token index in element 0, the string content of the original token in element 1 and the line number in element 2.

Changelog

Version Description
7.0.0 Added the optional flags parameter along with the TOKEN_PARSE flag.
5.2.2 Line numbers are returned in element 2

Examples

Example #1 token_get_all() example

<?php
$tokens 
token_get_all('<?php echo; ?>');

foreach (
$tokens as $token) {
    if (
is_array($token)) {
        echo 
"Line {$token[2]}: "token_name($token[0]), " ('{$token[1]}')"PHP_EOL;
    }
}
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

Line 1: T_OPEN_TAG ('<?php ')
Line 1: T_ECHO ('echo')
Line 1: T_WHITESPACE (' ')
Line 1: T_CLOSE_TAG ('?>')

Example #2 token_get_all() incorrect usage example

<?php
$tokens 
token_get_all('/* comment */');

foreach (
$tokens as $token) {
    if (
is_array($token)) {
        echo 
"Line {$token[2]}: "token_name($token[0]), " ('{$token[1]}')"PHP_EOL;
    }
}
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

Line 1: T_INLINE_HTML ('/* comment */')
Note in the previous example that the string is parsed as T_INLINE_HTML rather than the expected T_COMMENT. This is because no open tag was used in the code provided. This would be equivalent to putting a comment outside of the PHP tags in a normal file.

Example #3 token_get_all() on a class using a reserved word example

<?php

$source 
= <<<'code'
<?php

class A
{
    const PUBLIC = 1;
}
code;

$tokens token_get_all($sourceTOKEN_PARSE);

foreach (
$tokens as $token) {
    if (
is_array($token)) {
        echo 
token_name($token[0]) , PHP_EOL;
    }
}
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

T_OPEN_TAG
T_WHITESPACE
T_CLASS
T_WHITESPACE
T_STRING
T_CONST
T_WHITESPACE
T_STRING
T_LNUMBER
Without the TOKEN_PARSE flag, the penultimate token (T_STRING) would have been T_PUBLIC.
