Manual Reference Pages - PPI::TOKEN::WORD (3)
PPI::Token::Word - The generic "word" Token
A PPI::Token::Word object is a PPI-specific representation of several
different types of word-like things, and is one of the most common Token
classes found in typical documents.
Specifically, it includes not only barewords, but also any other valid
Perl identifier including non-operator keywords and core functions, and
any include :: separators inside it, as long as it fits the
format of a class, function, etc.
There are no methods available for PPI::Token::Word beyond those
provided by its PPI::Token and PPI::Element parent
We expect to add additional methods to help further resolve a Word as
a function, method, etc over time. If you need such a thing right
now, look at Perl::Critic::Utils.
Returns the value of the Word as a string. This assumes (often
incorrectly) that the Word is a bareword and not a function, method,
keyword, etc. This differs from content because FooBar expands
Answers whether this is the name of a method in a method call. Returns true if
yes, false if no, and nothing if unknown.
- Add function, method etc detector methods
