PPI::Token::_QuoteEngine(3) The PPI Quote Engine


The "PPI::Token::_QuoteEngine" package is designed hold functionality for processing quotes and quote like operators, including regexes. These have special requirements in parsing.

The "PPI::Token::_QuoteEngine" package itself provides various parsing methods, which the PPI::Token::Quote, PPI::Token::QuoteLike and PPI::Token::Regexp can inherit from. In this sense, it serves as a base class.

Using this class

(Refers only to internal uses. This class does not provide a public interface)

To use these, you should initialize them as normal '$Class->new', and then call the 'fill' method, which will cause the specialised parser to scan forwards and parse the quote to its end point.

If ->fill returns true, finalise the token.
