PPI::Statement::UnmatchedBrace - Isolated unmatched brace

sub foo {

} # <--- This is an unmatched brace

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

The "PPI::Statement::UnmatchedBrace" class is a miscellaneous utility class. Objects of this type should be rare, or not exist at all in normal valid PPI::Document objects.

It can be either a round ')', square ']' or curly '}' brace, this class does not distinguish. Objects of this type are only allocated at a structural level, not a lexical level (as they are lexically invalid anyway).

The presence of a "PPI::Statement::UnmatchedBrace" indicated a broken or invalid document. Or maybe a bug in PPI, but far more likely a broken Document. :)

"PPI::Statement::UnmatchedBrace" 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.
