PPI::Token::QuoteLike::Regexp - Regexp constructor quote-like operator

isa PPI::Token::QuoteLike
    isa PPI::Token
        isa PPI::Element

A "PPI::Token::QuoteLike::Regexp" object represents the quote-like operator used to construct anonymous Regexp objects, as follows.

# Create a Regexp object for a module filename
my $module = qr/\.pm$/;

The following methods are provided by this class, beyond those provided by the parent PPI::Token::QuoteLike, PPI::Token and PPI::Element classes.

The "get_match_string" method returns the portion of the string that will be compiled into the match portion of the regexp.

The "get_substitute_string" method always returns "undef", since the "qr{}" construction provides no substitution string. This method is provided for orthogonality with "PPI::Token::Regexp".

The "get_modifiers" method returns the modifiers that will be compiled into the regexp.

The "get_delimiters" method returns the delimiters of the string as an array. The first and only element is the delimiters of the string to be compiled into a match string.

See the support section in the main module.
