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

NAME
       PPI::Token::Quote - String quote abstract base class

INHERITANCE
	 PPI::Token::Quote
	 isa PPI::Token
	     isa PPI::Element

DESCRIPTION
       The "PPI::Token::Quote" class is never instantiated, and simply provides a common abstract
       base class for the four quote classes.  In PPI, a "quote" is limited to only the quote-
       like things that themselves directly represent a string. (although this includes double
       quotes with interpolated elements inside them).

       The subclasses of "PPI::Token::Quote" are:

       '' - PPI::Token::Quote::Single
       "q{}" - PPI::Token::Quote::Literal
       "" - PPI::Token::Quote::Double
       "qq{}" - PPI::Token::Quote::Interpolate

       The names are hopefully obvious enough not to have to explain what each class is here. See
       their respective pages for more details.

       Please note that although the here-doc does represent a literal string, it is such a nasty
       piece of work that in PPI it is given the honor of its own token class
       (PPI::Token::HereDoc).

METHODS
   string
       The "string" method is provided by all four ::Quote classes. It won't get you the actual
       literal Perl value, but it will strip off the wrapping of the quotes.

	 # The following all return foo from the ->string method
	 'foo'
	 "foo"
	 q{foo}
	 qq <foo>

   literal
       The "literal" method is provided by ::Quote:Literal and ::Quote::Single.  This returns the
       value of the string as Perl sees it: without the quote marks and with "\\" and "\'"
       resolved to "\" and "'".

       The "literal" method is not implemented by ::Quote::Double or ::Quote::Interpolate yet.

SUPPORT
       See the support section in the main module.
