NAME

Test2::Util::Stash - Utilities for manipulating stashes and globs.

CONTENTS

EXPERIMENTAL RELEASE

This is an experimental release. Using this right now is not recommended.

DESCRIPTION

This is a collection of utilities for manipulating and inspecting package stashes and globs.

EXPORTS

$stash = get_stash($package) Gets the package stash. This is the same as $stash = \%Package::Name::.
$sym_spec = parse_symbol($symbol)
$sym_spec = parse_symbol($symbol, $package) Parse a symbol name, and return a hashref with info about the symbol.

$symbol can be a simple name, or a fully qualified symbol name. The sigil is optional, ’&’ is assumed if none is provided. If $symbol is fully qualified, and $package is also provided, then the package of the symbol must match the $package.

Returns a structure like this:



    return {
        name    => BAZ,
        sigil   => $,
        type    => SCALAR,
        symbol  => &Foo::Bar::BAZ,
        package => Foo::Bar,
    };



$glob_ref = get_glob($symbol)
$glob_ref = get_glob($symbol, $package) Get a glob ref. Arguments are the same as for parse_symbol.
$ref = get_symbol($symbol)
$ref = get_symbol($symbol, $package) Get a reference to the symbol. Arguments are the same as for parse_symbol.
$ref = purge_symbol($symbol)
$ref = purge_symbol($symbol, $package) Completely remove the symbol from the package symbol table. Arguments are the same as for parse_symbol. A reference to the removed symbol is returned.
$sig = slot_to_sig($slot) Convert a slot (like ’SCALAR’) to a sigil (like ’$’).
$slot = sig_to_slot($sig) Convert a sigil (like ’$’) to a slot (like ’SCALAR’).
