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

NAME
PPI::Statement::Compound - Describes all compound statements SYNOPSIS
# A compound if statement if ( foo ) { bar(); } else { baz(); } # A compound loop statement foreach ( @list ) { bar($_); } INHERITANCE
PPI::Statement::Compound isa PPI::Statement isa PPI::Node isa PPI::Element DESCRIPTION
"PPI::Statement::Compound" objects are used to describe all current forms of compound statements, as described in perlsyn. This covers blocks using "if", "unless", "for", "foreach", "while", and "continue". Please note this does not cover "simple" statements with trailing conditions. Please note also that "do" is also not part of a compound statement. # This is NOT a compound statement my $foo = 1 if $condition; # This is also not a compound statement do { ... } until $condition; METHODS
"PPI::Statement::Compound" has a number of methods in addition to the standard PPI::Statement, PPI::Node and PPI::Element methods. type The "type" method returns the syntactic type of the compound statement. There are four basic compound statement types. The 'if' type includes all variations of the if and unless statements, including any 'elsif' or 'else' parts of the compound statement. The 'while' type describes the standard while and until statements, but again does not describes simple statements with a trailing while. The 'for' type covers the C-style for loops, regardless of whether they were declared using 'for' or 'foreach'. The 'foreach' type covers loops that iterate over collections, regardless of whether they were declared using 'for' or 'foreach'. All of the compounds are a variation on one of these four. Returns the simple string 'if', 'for', 'foreach' or 'while', or "undef" if the type cannot be determined. TO DO
