PPI::Transform::UpdateCopyright - Demonstration PPI::Transform class

my $transform = PPI::Transform::UpdateCopyright->new(
    name => 'Adam Kennedy'


PPI::Transform::UpdateCopyright provides a demonstration of a typical PPI::Transform class.

This class implements a document transform that will take the name of an author and update the copyright statement to refer to the current year, if it does not already do so.

my $transform = PPI::Transform::UpdateCopyright->new(
    name => 'Adam Kennedy'

The "new" constructor creates a new transform object for a specific author. It takes a single "name" parameter that should be the name (or longer string) for the author.

Specifying the name is required to allow the changing of a subset of copyright statements that refer to you from a larger set in a file.

The "name" accessor returns the author name that the transform will be searching for copyright statements of.

- May need to overload some methods to forcefully prevent Document objects becoming children of another Node.

See the support section in the main module.
