example

var detect = require('lexical-scope');
var fs = require('fs');
var src = fs.readFileSync(__dirname + '/src.js');

var scope = detect(src);
console.dir(scope);

input:

var x = 5;
var y = 3, z = 2;

w.foo();
w = 2;

RAWR=444;
RAWR.foo();

BLARG=3;

foo(function () {
    var BAR = 3;
    process.nextTick(function (ZZZZZZZZZZZZ) {
        console.log('beep boop');
        var xyz = 4;
        x += 10;
        x.zzzzzz;
        ZZZ=6;
    });
    function doom () {
    }
    ZZZ.foo();

});

console.log(xyz);

output:

$ node example/detect.js
{ locals: 
   { '': [ 'x', 'y', 'z' ],
     'body.7.arguments.0': [ 'BAR', 'doom' ],
     'body.7.arguments.0.body.1.arguments.0': [ 'xyz' ],
     'body.7.arguments.0.body.2': [] },
  globals: 
   { implicit: [ 'w', 'foo', 'process', 'console', 'xyz' ],
     exported: [ 'w', 'RAWR', 'BLARG', 'ZZZ' ] } }

methods

var detect = require('lexical-scope')

var scope = detect(src)

Return a scope structure from a javascript source string src.

scope.locals maps scope name keys to an array of local variable names declared with var. The key name '' refers to the top-level scope.

scope.globals.implicit contains the global variable names that are expected to already exist in the environment by the script.

scope.globals.explicit contains the global variable names that are exported by the script.
