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

NAME
PPI::Token::QuoteLike::Regexp - Regexp constructor quote-like operator INHERITANCE
PPI::Token::QuoteLike::Regexp isa PPI::Token::QuoteLike isa PPI::Token isa PPI::Element DESCRIPTION
A "PPI::Token::QuoteLike::Regexp" object represents the quote-like operator used to construct anonymous Regexp objects, as follows. # Create a Regexp object for a module filename my $module = qr/.pm$/; METHODS
The following methods are provided by this class, beyond those provided by the parent PPI::Token::QuoteLike, PPI::Token and PPI::Element classes. get_match_string The "get_match_string" method returns the portion of the string that will be compiled into the match portion of the regexp. get_substitute_string The "get_substitute_string" method always returns "undef", since the "qr{}" construction provides no substitution string. This method is provided for orthogonality with "PPI::Token::Regexp". get_modifiers The "get_modifiers" method returns the modifiers that will be compiled into the regexp. get_delimiters The "get_delimiters" method returns the delimiters of the string as an array. The first and only element is the delimiters of the string to be compiled into a match string. SUPPORT
