NAME

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

CONTENTS

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 <B>notB> 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.
