ParseTree version 2.0.2 has been released!
Published 2007-09-20 @ 01:12
ParseTree is a C extension (using RubyInline) that extracts the parse tree for an entire class or a specific method and returns it as a s-expression (aka sexp) using ruby’s arrays, strings, symbols, and integers.
As an example:
def conditional1(arg1) if arg1 == 0 then return 1 end return 0 end
[:defn, :conditional1, [:scope, [:block, [:args, :arg1], [:if, [:call, [:lvar, :arg1], :==, [:array, [:lit, 0]]], [:return, [:lit, 1]], nil], [:return, [:lit, 0]]]]]
- Uses RubyInline, so it just drops in.
- Includes SexpProcessor and CompositeSexpProcessor.
- Allows you to write very clean filters.
- Includes UnifiedRuby, allowing you to automatically rewrite ruby quirks.
- ParseTree#parse_tree_for_string lets you parse arbitrary strings of ruby.
- Includes parse_tree_show, which lets you quickly snoop code.
echo “1+1” parse_tree_show -f for quick snippet output.
- Includes parse_tree_abc, which lets you get abc metrics on code.
- abc metrics = numbers of assignments, branches, and calls.
- whitespace independent metric for method complexity.
- Includes parse_tree_deps, which shows you basic class level dependencies.
- Does not work on the core classes, as they are not ruby (yet).
2 minor enhancements:
- Deactivated gcc-specific compiler flags unless ENV[‘ANAL’] or on my domain.
- Minor code cleanup - happier with -pedantic and the like.
1 bug fix:
- FINALLY conquered the splat args bug on certain platforms/versions. Special Thanks to Jonas Pfenniger for debugging this and providing a patch.
