PHP Code-Beautifier Tool
Posted on 1/5/07 by Tim Koschützki
Today I discovered a good tool for beautifying existing PHP Code. It works via a web interface. You can either upload a script or directly input it. The code is beautified according to the PHP PEAR Standard Requirements. It does not change or debug your code in any way. What it does is the following:
* Tries to set missing curly braces around single conditional statements. This may not work in all situations.
* Indents with four spaces.
* Uses "one true brace" style in function definitions.
* Sets one space between control keyword and condition.
* Removes space between function calls, parenthesis and beginning of argument list.
You can download it here.

It has one big flaw.. it works in iso-8859-1 encoding instead of utf-8 - it will change all non iso characters in code..
Yeah checked that out myself. I will most likely email the developer about it.
Other than that it's a good tool!
Can it work on all php files in one folder or we have to upload one file by file.
Unfortunately it can't yet. However, I will modify it so that it will be possible. I scheduled this for Sunday. Can't work on it today, because I will need to do something for my full-time job. :/

Another one is PHP_Beautifier. Not perfect, but might help in some cases:
pear install PHP_Beautifier
# note: you may need to first run
pear config-set preferred_state beta
