PPI::Statement::Scheduled - A scheduled code block

isa PPI::Statement::Sub
    isa PPI::Statement
        isa PPI::Node
            isa PPI::Element

A scheduled code block is one that is intended to be run at a specific time during the loading process.

There are five types of scheduled block:

      # Executes as soon as this block is fully defined
      # Executes after overall compile-phase in reverse order
      # Executes after compile-phase of individual module in reverse order
      # Executes just before run-time
      # Executes as late as possible in reverse order

Technically these scheduled blocks are actually subroutines, and in fact may have 'sub' in front of them.

The "type" method returns the type of scheduled block, which should always be one of 'BEGIN', 'CHECK', 'UNITCHECK', 'INIT' or 'END'.
