       PPI::Token::Cast - A prefix which forces a value into a different context

	 isa PPI::Token
	     isa PPI::Element

       A "cast" in PPI terms is one of more characters used as a prefix which force a value into
       a different class or context.

       This includes referencing, dereferencing, and a few other minor cases.

       For expressions such as @$foo or "@{ $foo{bar} }" the "@" in both cases represents a cast.
       In this case, an array dereference.

       There are no additional methods beyond those provided by the parent PPI::Token and
       PPI::Element classes.

       Got any ideas for methods? Submit a report to rt.cpan.org!
