NAME

PPIx::Regexp::Token::Reference - Represent a reference to a capture

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 use PPIx::Regexp::Dumper;
 PPIx::Regexp::Dumper->new( qr{\1}smx )
     ->print();



INHERITANCE

PPIx::Regexp::Token::Reference is a PPIx::Regexp::Token.

PPIx::Regexp::Token::Reference is the parent of PPIx::Regexp::Token::Backreference, PPIx::Regexp::Token::Condition and PPIx::Regexp::Token::Recursion.

DESCRIPTION

This abstract class represents a reference to a capture buffer, either numbered or named. It should never be instantiated, but it provides a number of methods to its subclasses.

METHODS

This class provides the following public methods. Methods not documented here are private, and unsupported in the sense that the author reserves the right to change or remove them without notice.

    absolute



 print "The absolute reference is ", $ref->absolute(), "\n";



This method returns the absolute number of the capture buffer referred to. This is the same as number() for unsigned numeric references. If the reference is to a named buffer, undef is returned.

    is_named



 $ref->is_named and print "named reference\n";



This method returns true if the reference is named rather than numbered.

    is_relative



 $ref->is_relative()
     and print "relative numbered reference\n";



This method returns true if the reference is numbered and it is a relative number (i.e. if it is signed).

    name



 print "The name is ", $ref->name(), "\n";



This method returns the name of the capture buffer referred to. In the case of a reference to a numbered capture (i.e. is_named returns false), this method returns undef.

    number



 print "The number is ", $ref->number(), "\n";



This method returns the number of the capture buffer referred to. In the case of a reference to a named capture (i.e. is_named returns true), this method returns undef.
