Hi Aarts -


Hm, I'm not sure if PMD will be the best tool for you in this regard, since it discards comments.


However, perhaps the Unix utility "grep" would work for you... it can search files with regular expressions, report the surrounding context for each occurrence, and so forth.


Yours,


Tom
