PPIx::Grep - Search PPI documents (not Perl code).
This document describes PPIx::Grep version 0.0.6.
use PPIx::Grep qw< run set_print_format >; set_print_format('%f> %s\n'); # Yes, single quotes. my $return_code = run( qw< include lib/PPIx/Grep.pm > );
This is the guts of ppigrep. You're most likely more interested in that.
Nothing is exported by default, but you can import everything using the
Parse command-line options, find PPI elements, and emit the results.
Returns the expected exit value for the program. This value is equivalent to the one for
grep. If a match was found, this is 0. If no match was found, this is 1. And if any problems occurred, this is 2.
Specifies where the regular output will go.
Specifies where the error output will go.
Sets the pattern that elements will be matched against. This needs to be a compiled regex and not merely a string.
Sets the format to be used to emit an individual PPI::Element. Note that newlines are not automatically printed for each Element; if you want them, you need to specify them as part of the parameter.
The pattern argument could not be resolved to a subclass of
PPI::Element via PPIx::Shorthand.
The pattern argument didn't resolve to any PPI::Element subclasses. Did you specify the empty string?
The regex specified via
--match could not be compiled.
Cannot find the file.
Cannot read the file.
The "file" was actually a directory.
PPI could not interpret the file as a Perl document.
