Code

function token_scan($text) {
  // Matches tokens with the following pattern: [$type:$name]
  // $type and $name may not contain [ ] characters.
  // $type may not contain : or whitespace characters, but $name may.
  preg_match_all('/
    \[             # [ - pattern start
    ([^\s\[\]:]*)  # match $type not containing whitespace : [ or ]
    :              # : - separator
    ([^\[\]]*)     # match $name not containing [ or ]

  // $tokens grouped by $types, pointing to the version of the token found in
  // the source text. For example, $results['node']['title'] = '[node:title]';
