Command-line script to convert between array() and PHP 5.4's short syntax 
Command-line script to convert between
array() and PHP 5.4's short syntax
 (and vice versa).
It uses native PHP tokenizer, so conversion is safe. The script was successfully tested against thousands of PHP files.
To convert all
*.phpt files in whole directory recursively or to convert a single file use:
php convert.php <directory | file>
To convert source code from STDIN and print the output to STDOUT use:
php convert.php < input.php > output.php
To convert short syntax
 to older long syntax
array() use option
php convert.php --reverse <directory | file>
