PPI::Token::Attribute(3)       User Contributed Perl Documentation	 PPI::Token::Attribute(3)

NAME
       PPI::Token::Attribute - A token for a subroutine attribute

INHERITANCE
	 PPI::Token::Attribute
	 isa PPI::Token
	     isa PPI::Element

DESCRIPTION
       In Perl, attributes are a relatively recent addition to the language.

       Given the code " sub foo : bar(something) {} ", the "bar(something)" part is the
       attribute.

       A "PPI::Token::Attribute" token represents the entire of the attribute, as the braces and
       its contents are not parsed into the tree, and are treated by Perl (and thus by us) as a
       single string.

METHODS
       This class provides some additional methods beyond those provided by its PPI::Token and
       PPI::Element parent classes.

   identifier
       The "identifier" attribute returns the identifier part of the attribute.

       That is, for the attribute "foo(bar)", the "identifier" method would return "foo".

   parameters
       The "parameters" method returns the parameter strong for the attribute.

       That is, for the attribute "foo(bar)", the "parameters" method would return "bar".

       Returns the parameters as a string (including the null string '' for the case of an
       attribute such as "foo()".

       Returns "undef" if the attribute does not have parameters.

SUPPORT
       See the support section in the main module.
