PPI::Statement::Unknown(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation PPI::Statement::Unknown(3)

PPI::Statement::Unknown - An unknown or transient statement

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

The "PPI::Statement::Unknown" class is used primarily during the lexing process to hold elements that are known to be statement, but for which the exact "type" of statement is as yet unknown, and requires further tokens in order to resolve the correct type.

They should not exist in a fully parse valid document, and if any exists they indicate either a problem in Document, or possibly (by allowing it to get through unresolved) a bug in PPI::Lexer.

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

See the support section in the main module.
