PPI::Document::File(3)					User Contributed Perl Documentation				    PPI::Document::File(3)

PPI::Document::File - A Perl Document located in a specific file DESCRIPTION
WARNING: This class is experimental, and may change without notice PPI::Document::File provides a PPI::Document subclass that represents a Perl document stored in a specific named file. METHODS
new my $file = PPI::Document::File->new( '' ); The "new" constructor works the same as for the regular one, except that the only params allowed is a file name. You cannot create an "anonymous" PPI::Document::File object, not can you create an empty one. Returns a new PPI::Document::File object, or "undef" on error. filename The "filename" accessor returns the name of the file in which the document is stored. save # Save to the file we were loaded from $file->save; # Save a copy to somewhere else $file->save( '' ); The "save" method works similarly to the one in the parent PPI::Document class, saving a copy of the document to a file. The difference with this subclass is that if "save" is not passed any filename, it will save it back to the file it was loaded from. Note: When saving to a different file, it is considered to be saving a copy and so the value returned by the "filename" accessor will stay the same, and not change to the new filename. TO DO
- May need to overload some methods to forcefully prevent Document objects becoming children of another Node. SUPPORT

PPI::Document::Fragment(3)				User Contributed Perl Documentation				PPI::Document::Fragment(3)

PPI::Document::Fragment - A fragment of a Perl Document DESCRIPTION
In some situations you might want to work with a fragment of a larger document. "PPI::Document::Fragment" is a class intended for this purpose. It is functionally almost identical to a normal PPI::Document, except that it is not possible to get line/column positions for the elements within it, and it does not represent a scope. METHODS
index_locations Unlike when called on a PPI::Document object, you should not be attempting to find locations of things within a PPI::Document::Fragment, and thus any call to the "index_locations" will print a warning and return "undef" instead of attempting to index the locations of the Elements. TO DO
Integrate this into the rest of PPI so it has actual practical uses. The most obvious would be to implement arbitrary cut/copy/paste more easily. SUPPORT
