NAME ^

PPI::Statement::Null - A useless null statement

SYNOPSIS ^

  my $foo = 1;
  
  ; # <-- Null statement
  
  my $bar = 1;

INHERITANCE ^

  PPI::Statement::Null
  isa PPI::Statement
      isa PPI::Node
          isa PPI::Element

DESCRIPTION ^

PPI::Statement::Null is a utility class designed to handle situations where PPI encounters a naked statement separator.

Although strictly speaking, the semicolon is a statement separator and not a statement terminator, PPI considers a semicolon to be a statement terminator under most circumstances.

In any case, the null statement has no purpose, and can be safely deleted with no ill effect.

METHODS ^

PPI::Statement::Null has no additional methods beyond the default ones provided by PPI::Statement, PPI::Node and PPI::Element.

SUPPORT ^

See the support section in the main module.
