Pod::Simple::PullParserTextToken -- text-tokens from Pod::Simple::PullParser
When you do $parser->get_token on a Pod::Simple::PullParser, 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:
This returns the text that this token holds. For example, parsing C<foo> will return a C start-token, a text-token, and a C end-token. And if you want to get the "foo" out of the text-token, call
This changes the string that this token holds. You probably won't need to do this.
This returns a scalar reference to the string that this token holds. This can be useful if you don't want to memory-copy the potentially large text value (well, as large as a paragraph or a verbatim block) as calling $token->text would do.
Or, if you want to alter the value, you can even do things like this:
You're unlikely to ever need to construct an object of this class for
yourself, but if you want to, call
Pod::Simple::PullParserTextToken->new( text )
