README

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.

Usage

To convert all *.php and *.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 --reverse:

php convert.php --reverse <directory | file>
