NAME

Devel::REPL::Plugin::MultiLine::PPI - read lines until all blocks are closed

CONTENTS

VERSION

version 1.003026

SYNOPSIS



    use Devel::REPL;

    my $repl = Devel::REPL->new;
    $repl->load_plugin(LexEnv);
    $repl->load_plugin(History);
    $repl->load_plugin(MultiLine::PPI);
    $repl->run;



DESCRIPTION

Plugin that will collect lines until you have no unfinished structures. This lets you write subroutines, if statements, loops, etc. more naturally.

For example, without a MultiLine plugin,



    $ my $x = 3;
    3
    $ if ($x == 3) {



will throw a compile error, because that if statement is incomplete. With a MultiLine plugin,



    $ my $x = 3;
    3
    $ if ($x == 3) {

    > print "OH NOES!"

    > }
    OH NOES
    1



you may write the code across multiple lines, such as in irb and python.

This module uses PPI. This plugin is named MultiLine::PPI because someone else may conceivably implement similar behavior some other less dependency-heavy way.
