Git Checkout

$ git clone git://

Installation with PEAR Installer

$ pear config-set preferred_state alpha
$ pear channel-discover
$ pear install --alldeps phpunit/PHP_CodeBrowser


Shell Usage

Usage: phpcb(.php|.bat) --log <dir> --output <dir> [--source <dir>]

--log          Path to xml log files, e.g. generated by phpunit
--output       Path to output directory (must differ from source directory)
--source (opt) Path to project source

In case the optional --source parameter is used the given target directory will be parsed. Errors from log files will be merged into the parsed file list from the target directory.

Otherwise only files from error logs will be parsed.

Integration in CruiseControl

<!-- phpcb should be called after xml file generation -->
<target name="build" depends="...,phpcb" />
<target name="phpcb">
    <exec executable="phpcb">
        <arg line="--log path/to/log/dir
                   --output path/to/output/dir/
                   --source path/to/source/dir/" />
