Example #1 token_get_all() examples

token_get_all('<?php echo; ?>'); /* => array(
                                                  array(T_OPEN_TAG, '<?php'), 
                                                  array(T_ECHO, 'echo'),
                                                  array(T_CLOSE_TAG, '?>') ); */

/* Note in the following example that the string is parsed as T_INLINE_HTML
   rather than the otherwise expected T_COMMENT (T_ML_COMMENT in PHP <5).
   This is because no open/close tags were used in the "code" provided.
   This would be equivalent to putting a comment outside of <?php ?> tags in a normal file. */
$tokens token_get_all('/* comment */'); // => array(array(T_INLINE_HTML, '/* comment */'));
