«Audit statique PHP» was some French dude who wrote a PHP parser to analyze code for defects (unused parameters, mismatching coding conventions, dead code and stuff like that) ans see how it «looks» from outside the box.

It was entertaining but not really useful «as is» I guess. It *highly* depends on your coding style and standards and it looked like his version was only able to understand his preferences and that a lot of advanced PHP features were just ignored (like callbacks, dymanic variables and stuff).

You can't really blame it on the author for sure, it would be a nightmare to implement, but the whole thing then becomes quite useless for me because it doesn't support my way of doing things.
