detective

example

strings

strings_src.js:

var a = require('a');
var b = require('b');
var c = require('c');

strings.js:

var detective = require('detective');
var fs = require('fs');
 
var src = fs.readFileSync(__dirname + '/strings_src.js');
var requires = detective(src);
console.dir(requires);

output:

$ node examples/strings.js
[ 'a', 'b', 'c' ]

methods

var detective = require('detective');

Give some source body src, return an object with "strings" and "expressions" arrays for each of the require() calls.
