    Great job!! Really.

    One thing I'll like to see, is know if a function has important changes in X.Y wordpress version, add more functions args o changes in how the data is returned…. but I guess that's more away in what grep could do ;)

    javier » indeed, that a bit too far for grep, it would require a more sophisticated tool such as the one used in phpxref

    Ozh, this is awesome. It's inspired me to look into writing a tool to that will take some code and give the WordPress versions it's compatible with. Let me know if that's something you are working on and if so, I'll stand clear.

    Tom » yes this is something I have in mind as it is an obvious enhancement of the tool, but I really dont' know when I have some time to work on this. Do feel free to get your hands onto this if you have some time, and be sure to let me know if you happen to make something cool :)

    I know how it feels. I'll allocate some time to have a stab at it and I'll keep you updated.

    Is the full source (i.e. PHP, jQuery code (could get that myself from the source) and sweat :P ) available? I'd like to modify it and build my own for my own software.

    It would be much appreciated :)

    How did you convert the grep result into a PHP array?

    The tool is awesome for functions, but where it falls apart is for objects.

    Two objects can have a function named add() but be two separate functions. I'm not sure your script takes that into account and therefore can't be used with objects.

    I would like to know where you got all of those versions because I might wish to write a strict PHP based tokenized version that does take functions in account and would not have any false positives from javascript files.

    Jacob » Indeed, the tool is not perfect. Data come from a basic grep, so it doesn't make a difference between foo::bar() and bar::bar()

    Nice … I just added this as an update to "Developer Documentation" in Codex.

    One major improvement though, would be to list WHICH file the function is in. That way if I want to look at the source, I don't need to search the entire WordPress codebase.

    Many thanks!
