NetCAT | PHP Editor Hyperlinks Review

Few days back, I posted about navigating from PHP webpage to Javascripts. Today, lets examine more hyperlinks in PHP files and webpages!

PHP Files…

Its demonstrated through following usecases;

Usecase #1

Suppose, following is my php file-

Don’t get into the technicalities of the code, I am still a novice in PHP development, though this is one of the files, I used to logout of a session, in my first and the last project ;)

Anyways, clicking on session_start, session_unregister (takes me to session.php) and sleep (takes you to standard.php).

Petr says,

“The session.php and standard.php files are our signature files, which contains just the function, class or variable signatures with appropriate phpdoc

Following snap, just shows the result of above clicking-

Usecase #2

This actually looks like a bug to me-

I think when I mouseOver require, then I should be taken to file where its defined, and when I mouseOver the URL inside the parantheses, then I should be navigated to that file. Right now, what happens is the following, I am taken to only one file, as it detects only 1 hyperlink, not 2-

Petr agrees with this usecase, its indeed a bug!

Usecase #3

If in the above image, you click on $connect in line #4, then you are taken to line #2, where its created and initialized.

PHP Webpages…

For complete details, like bug reports and more usecases, you need to refer the frequently updated doc-
