I recently got an assignment of converting 600+ PHP 5.6 files to PHP 7, where I also have to update to different coding conventions *sigh*

I then later found out about regex, and regex search in atom.io :D I'm now strongly considering making a converter, that goes after my clients spec, does any of you have experience with that?

    interesting concept. Would you be able to catch everything with it, though? I know for instance that preg_replace() itself had one modifier removed. It might be a pain to write a regex for a regex interpreter. Then again, I'm no wizkid with regex. keep me updated!

    That's exactly the "I'm gonna replace you with a simple script" kind of thinking. I like it!
