NAME ^

PPI::Token::Word - The generic "word" Token

INHERITANCE ^

  PPI::Token::Word
  isa PPI::Token
      isa PPI::Element

DESCRIPTION ^

A PPI::Token::Word object is a PPI-specific representation of several different types of word-like things, and is one of the most common Token classes found in typical documents.

Specifically, it includes not only barewords, but also any other valid Perl identifier including non-operator keywords and core functions, and any include :: separators inside it, as long as it fits the format of a class, function, etc.

METHODS ^

There are no methods available for PPI::Token::Word beyond those provided by its PPI::Token and PPI::Element parent classes.

We expect to add additional methods to help further resolve a Word as a function, method, etc over time. If you need such a thing right now, look at Perl::Critic::Utils.

literal

Returns the value of the Word as a string. This assumes (often incorrectly) that the Word is a bareword and not a function, method, keyword, etc. This differs from content because Foo'Bar expands to Foo::Bar.

method_call

Answers whether this is the name of a method in a method call. Returns true if yes, false if no, and nothing if unknown.

TO DO ^

- Add function, method etc detector methods

SUPPORT ^

See the support section in the main module.
