PPI::Statement::Package(3)				User Contributed Perl Documentation				PPI::Statement::Package(3)

NAME
PPI::Statement::Package - A package statement INHERITANCE
PPI::Statement::Package isa PPI::Statement isa PPI::Node isa PPI::Element DESCRIPTION
Most PPI::Statement subclasses are assigned based on the value of the first token or word found in the statement. When PPI encounters a statement starting with 'package', it converts it to a "PPI::Statement::Package" object. When working with package statements, please remember that packages only exist within their scope, and proper support for scoping has yet to be completed in PPI. However, if the immediate parent of the package statement is the top level PPI::Document object, then it can be considered to define everything found until the next top-level "file scoped" package statement. A file may, however, contain nested temporary package, in which case you are mostly on your own :) METHODS
"PPI::Statement::Package" has a number of methods in addition to the standard PPI::Statement, PPI::Node and PPI::Element methods. namespace Most package declarations are simple, and just look something like package Foo::Bar; The "namespace" method returns the name of the declared package, in the above case 'Foo::Bar'. It returns this exactly as written and does not attempt to clean up or resolve things like ::Foo to main::Foo. If the package statement is done any different way, it returns false. file_scoped Regardless of whether it is named or not, the "file_scoped" method will test to see if the package declaration is a top level "file scoped" statement or not, based on its location. In general, returns true if it is a "file scoped" package declaration with an immediate parent of the top level Document, or false if not. Note that if the PPI DOM tree does not have a PPI::Document object at as the root element, this will return false. Likewise, it will also return false if the root element is a PPI::Document::Fragment, as a fragment of a file does not represent a scope. SUPPORT

PPI::Statement::Sub(3)					User Contributed Perl Documentation				    PPI::Statement::Sub(3)

NAME
PPI::Statement::Sub - Subroutine declaration INHERITANCE
PPI::Statement::Sub isa PPI::Statement isa PPI::Node isa PPI::Element DESCRIPTION
Except for the special BEGIN, CHECK, UNITCHECK, INIT, and END subroutines (which are part of PPI::Statement::Scheduled) all subroutine declarations are lexed as a PPI::Statement::Sub object. Primarily, this means all of the various "sub foo {}" statements, but also forward declarations such as "sub foo;" or "sub foo($);". It does not include anonymous subroutines, as these are merely part of a normal statement. METHODS
"PPI::Statement::Sub" has a number of methods in addition to the standard PPI::Statement, PPI::Node and PPI::Element methods. name The "name" method returns the name of the subroutine being declared. In some rare cases such as a naked "sub" at the end of the file, this may return false. prototype If it has one, the "prototype" method returns the subroutine's prototype. It is returned in the same format as "prototype" in PPI::Token::Prototype, cleaned and removed from its brackets. Returns false if the subroutine does not define a prototype block With its name and implementation shared with PPI::Statement::Scheduled, the "block" method finds and returns the actual Structure object of the code block for this subroutine. Returns false if this is a forward declaration, or otherwise does not have a code block. forward The "forward" method returns true if the subroutine declaration is a forward declaration. That is, it returns false if the subroutine has a code block, or true if it does not. reserved The "reserved" method provides a convenience method for checking to see if this is a special reserved subroutine. It does not check against any particular list of reserved sub names, but just returns true if the name is all uppercase, as defined in perlsub. Note that in the case of BEGIN, CHECK, UNITCHECK, INIT and END, these will be defined as PPI::Statement::Scheduled objects, not subroutines. Returns true if it is a special reserved subroutine, or false if not. TO DO
