I have a folder of 25 files.

One of these files contains a lot of HEREDOC. It never parses the class (or any methods of the class) in this file.

A sample is below:
class UserModel {
public function sendUpdatedEmailAddressEmail($activation_token)

            $url = "http://{$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME']}/activate/" . $this->getUserId() . "?token=$activation_token";

I left out a lot of code for the sake of brevity. But removing all of the HEREDOC causes it to work perfectly.

It does 100% properly process all the other files (none of which have HEREDOC).

Again, if I remove all the HEREDOC in the file, it works perfectly, parsing all of the methods (including the ones where the HEREDOC was written).

Hi Shawn,

I was not able to reproduce the problem with your example. That said, the HEREDOC contents was not properly skipped. I'll correct this.
If you could attach a self-contained example (source+config file in a tar or zip) that allows me to reproduce the problem, I can test if my solution works.
