NAME
       PPI::Token::Regexp - Regular expression abstract base class

INHERITANCE
	 PPI::Token::Regexp
	 isa PPI::Token
	     isa PPI::Element

DESCRIPTION
       The "PPI::Token::Regexp" class is never instantiated, and simply provides a common
       abstract base class for the three regular expression classes. These being:

       m// - PPI::Token::Regexp::Match
       s/// - PPI::Token::Regexp::Substitute
       tr/// - PPI::Token::Regexp::Transliterate

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

       To save some confusion, it's worth pointing out here that "qr//" is not a regular
       expression (which PPI takes to mean something that will actually examine or modify a
       string), but rather a quote-like operator that acts as a constructor for compiled Regexp
       objects.

METHODS
       The following methods are inherited by this class' offspring:

   get_match_string
       The "get_match_string" method returns the portion of the regexp that performs the match.

   get_substitute_string
       The "get_substitute_string" method returns the portion of the regexp that is substituted
       for the match, if any.  If the regexp does not substitute, "undef" is returned.

   get_modifiers
       The "get_modifiers" method returns the modifiers of the regexp.

   get_delimiters
       The "get_delimiters" method returns the delimiters of the regexp as an array. The first
       element is the delimiters of the match string, and the second element (if any) is the
       delimiters of the substitute string (if any).

SUPPORT
       See the support section in the main module.
