PPIx::Utilities::Statement - Extensions to PPI::Statement.

This document describes PPIx::Utilities::Statement version 1.1.0.

use PPI::Document qw< >;
use PPIx::Utilities::Statement qw<
my $document = PPI::Document->new(\'Readonly::Scalar my $THINGY => 47.2;');
# Returns the PPI::Token::Symbol for "$THINGY".

This is a collection of functions for dealing with PPI::Statements.

Nothing is exported by default.

Given a PPI::Statement, if the statement is a Readonly or Const::Fast declaration statement or a "use constant", returns the names of the things being defined.


use constant 1.16 FOO => 'bar';

this will return the PPI::Token::Word containing 'FOO'. Given

use constant 1.16 { FOO => 'bar', 'BAZ' => 'burfle' };

this will return a list of the PPI::Tokens containing 'FOO' and 'BAZ'. Similarly, given

Readonly::Hash my %FOO => ( bar => 'baz' );


const my %FOO => ( bar => 'baz' );

this will return the PPI::Token::Symbol containing '%FOO'.
