  • Display a list of available rulesets and formats:
    phpmd
  • Scan a file or directory for problems using comma-separated rulesets:
    phpmd path/to/file_or_directory xml|text|html rulesets
  • Specify the minimum priority threshold for rules:
    phpmd path/to/file_or_directory xml|text|html rulesets --minimumpriority priority
  • Include only the specified extensions in analysis:
    phpmd path/to/file_or_directory xml|text|html rulesets --suffixes extensions
  • Exclude the specified comma-separated directories:
    phpmd path/to/file_or_directory xml|text|html rulesets --exclude directory_patterns
  • Output the results to a file instead of stdout:
    phpmd path/to/file_or_directory xml|text|html rulesets --reportfile path/to/report_file
  • Ignore the use of warning-suppressive PHPDoc comments:
