Easy to do with amending the short_open_tag in php.ini:

short_open_tag = on

The mentioned tags have not been used since PHP Version 3/4 and should not be used generally. They used to be the norm, but they conflict with XML headers when running parsable XML files.

<? (which is discouraged since it is only available if enabled using the short_open_tag php.ini configuration file directive, or if PHP was configured with the --enable-short-tags option).

If a file is pure PHP code, it is preferable to omit the PHP closing tag at the end of the file. This prevents accidental whitespace or new lines being added after the PHP closing tag, which may cause unwanted effects because PHP will start output buffering when there is no intention from the programmer to send any output at that point in the script.
