NAME

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

CONTENTS

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 <B>doesB> 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.
