Request #32435 Add '-run' option to php command line (like java -jar)

Description:
------------
Seems to me it would be great if the php5 command line tool ('php') had an option to run a static main() method of a specified class just like java does:

eg:

php -run TTester TObject.php [args]

Which would call the main() in TTester:

TObjectToTest.php:

class TObjectToTest
{
   // ... class that we'll want to test
}

class TTester {

  public static main($args)
  {
     // execute tests on TObjectToTest
  }
}

This would be particularly good for making it easy to bundle  and run tests on each individual php file.

Thoughts?

PHP has no concept of main(), and it would be confusing to try to introduce one at this point.

Closing the request.
