I have trouble to extract source of a method or a class easily if the source code is not well formatted.

If the code is well formatted it's easy to extract the source because I can use:
public int ReflectionFunctionAbstract::getStartLine ( void ) and 
public int ReflectionFunctionAbstract::getEndLine ( void ).

But if the source is all in one line the amount of work that is needed to extract the source is overwhelming. Perhaps to do it really robust and realiable I'd have to use the tokenizer extension.

This doesn't look like something that should go into php-src,
since it is a rather special feature. If you strongly feel that
this feature should be added, please pursue the RFC process[1].
