PPI::Token::DashedWord - A dashed bareword token

isa PPI::Token
    isa PPI::Element

The "dashed bareword" token represents literal values like "-foo".

NOTE: this class is currently unused. All tokens that should be PPI::Token::DashedWords are just normal PPI::Token::Word instead. That actually makes sense, since there really is nothing special about this class except that dashed words cannot be subroutine names or keywords. As such, this class may be removed from PPI in the future.

Returns the value of the dashed word as a string. This differs from "content" because "-Foo'Bar" expands to "-Foo::Bar".

See the support section in the main module.
