Navigate to index.cfm or varscoper.cfm and enter the absolute or relative
path to the template or directory that you would like to check.
-CF Builder Extension Support
-Recognizes var statements anywhere in a function (CF9)
-Issues (13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,23,25,26,27,28,30,31,32) Fixed
-Open BD/Railo Supported
-CFScript comments parsed correctly
-Significant improvements to cfscript parsing engine
-Issues (6,7,8,9,10,11) fixed
-Ability to exclude files/folders using properties.xml (only when parsing a folder)
-Ability to identify tags with "multiple personalities" i.e. cffeed/cfprocparam that can have different behaviors for output variables based on params
-More agressive var scope checking (newly identified scenarios that were missed before)
-Addition of unit testing suite
-added new tags to the parsing engine
-added XML output support
-fixed some bugs related to directory parsing in CF6
-added support for cfscript
-initial release
-cf tag support
-Find unscoped variables created with a cfset within a cffunction
-Find unscoped variables created with cftags (cfloop, cfquery, etc)
-Report line numbers and link directly to the line in the file
-Output to screen or csv
-Identifies unscoped variables within cffunctions
-can return line numbers of functions/variables
Known Limitations:
-(fixed 1.13) Returns false positive when variables are set within a comments block
-(fixed 1.13) If you don't scope an argument value, and then reference that value it
will "technically" return a false positive...
<cfargument name="foo">
<cfset foo.foo2 = bar />
instead of...
<cfset />
Future TODOs:
-(fixed 1.13) create a library of all cf tags that can create variables
-(fixed 1.13) cfscript
-(fixed 1.13) ignore things in comments (May need to use lookbehind? Not supported in CF as far as I know)
-Integration with cfeclipse
How can I help?
-I need help extending the testCaseCFC file. If you come across false positives (or negatives)
within your code, please send me a snippet so I can add it to the testCaseCFC
-I need help finding all cftags that create variables (cfloop, cfquery, etc)
I'm sure there are some corner cases out there, I'd like to compile a comprehensive list.
