PPIx::EditorTools::RenameVariable(3) Lexically replace a variable name in Perl code


my $munged = PPIx::EditorTools::RenameVariable->new->rename(
code => $code,
line => 15,
column => 13,
replacement => 'stuff',
my $code_as_strig = $munged->code;
my $code_as_ppi = $munged->ppi;
my $location = $munged->element->location;


This module will lexically replace a variable name.


Constructor. Generally shouldn't be called with any arguments.
rename( ppi => PPI::Document $ppi, line => Int, column => Int, replacement => Str ) =item rename( code => Str $code, line => Int, column => Int, replacement => Str ) =item rename( code => Str $code, line => Int, column => Int, to_camel_case => Bool, [ucfirst => Bool] ) =item rename( code => Str $code, line => Int, column => Int, from_camel_case => Bool, [ucfirst => Bool] )
Accepts either a "PPI::Document" to process or a string containing the code (which will be converted into a "PPI::Document") to process. Renames the variable found at line, column with that supplied in the "replacement" parameter and returns a "PPIx::EditorTools::ReturnObject" with the new code available via the "ppi" or "code" accessors, as a "PPI::Document" or "string", respectively. The "PPI::Token" found at line, column is available via the "element" accessor.

Instead of specifying an explicit replacement variable name, you may choose to use the "to_camel_case" or "from_camel_case" options that automatically convert to/from camelCase. In that mode, the "ucfirst" option will force uppercasing of the first letter.

You can not specify a replacement name and use the "to/from_camel_case" options.

Croaks with a ``no token'' exception if no token is found at the location. Croaks with a ``no declaration'' exception if unable to find the declaration.
