Description clan82 2013-12-13 13:03:40 UTC

I think it was a bad choice to completely remove the uninitialized variable check from code in the PHP outer/global scope. In many cases I am looking at a "main" PHP file, in which the hint is totally valid. In other cases it is an included file, for where it can or cannot be valid. In both cases you get a hint about something _may_ be wrong, and you can react on it, possibly write a comment.

Therefore I would like, as a minimum, a checkbox in the hint settings, to enable/disable the check on outer/global code.

A more ambitious way would be a way to annotate each file.

Regards, Claus
