I have several finished, older PHP projects with a lot of includes that I would like to document in javadoc/phpDocumentor style.
While working through each file manually and being forced to do a code review alongside the documenting would be the best thing, I am, simply out of time constraints, interested in tools to help me automate the task as much as possible.
The tool I am thinking about would ideally have the following features:
Parse a PHP project tree and tell me where there are undocumented files, classes, and functions/methods (i.e. elements missing the appropriate docblock comment)
Provide a method to half-way easily add the missing docblocks by creating the empty structures and, ideally, opening the file in an editor (internal or external I don't care) so I can put in the description.
- Automatic recognition of parameter types, return values and such. But that's not really required.
The language in question is PHP, though I could imagine that a C/Java tool might be able to handle PHP files after some tweaking.
Thanks for your great input!
