 my $description = $handle->description;

keywords

 my @keywords = $handle->keywords;

Returns a list of keyword data pairs available for retreival from this handle object.

keyword

 for my $keyword ($handle->keywords) {
     printf("Keyword \"%s\" => \"%s\"\n",
             $keyword,
             $handle->keyword($keyword)
         );
 }

parsed_structures

 use Data::Dumper;
 my $ref = $handle->parsed_structures;
