Pod::Simple::PullParserStartToken

NAME

Pod::Simple::PullParserStartToken -- start-tokens from Pod::Simple::PullParser

SYNOPSIS

(See Pod::Simple::PullParser)

DESCRIPTION

When you do $parser->get_token on a Pod::Simple::PullParser object, you might get an object of this class.

This is a subclass of Pod::Simple::PullParserToken and inherits all its methods, and adds these methods:

  • $token->tagname

    This returns the tagname for this start-token object. For example, parsing a "=head1 ..." line will give you a start-token with the tagname of "head1", token(s) for its content, and then an end-token with the tagname of "head1".

  • $token->tagname(somestring)

    This changes the tagname for this start-token object. You probably won't need to do this.

  • $token->tag(...)

    A shortcut for $token->tagname(...)

  • $token->is_tag(somestring) or $token->is_tagname(somestring)

    These are shortcuts for $token->tag() eq somestring

  • $token->attr(attrname)

    This returns the value of the attrname attribute for this start-token object, or undef.

    For example, parsing a L<Foo/"Bar"> link will produce a start-token with a "to" attribute with the value "Foo", a "type" attribute with the value "pod", and a "section" attribute with the value "Bar".

  • $token->attr(attrname, newvalue)

    This sets the attrname attribute for this start-token object to newvalue. You probably won't need to do this.

  • $token->attr_hash

    This returns the hashref that is the attribute set for this start-token. This is useful if (for example) you want to ask what all the attributes are -- you can just do keys %{$token->attr_hash}

You're unlikely to ever need to construct an object of this class for yourself, but if you want to, call Pod::Simple::PullParserStartToken->new( tagname, attrhash )
