example

strings

strings_src.js:

var a = require('a');
var b = require('b');
var c = require('c');

strings.js:

var detective = require('detective');
var fs = require('fs');

var src = fs.readFileSync(__dirname + '/strings_src.js');
var requires = detective(src);
console.dir(requires);

output:

$ node examples/strings.js
[ 'a', 'b', 'c' ]

methods

var detective = require('detective');

detective(src)

Give some source body src, return an array of all the require()s with string arguments.

detective.find(src)

Give some source body src, return an object with "strings" and "expressions" arrays for each of the require() calls.

The "expressions" array will contain the stringified expressions.
