NAME

Dist::Zilla::Role::PPI - a role for plugins which use PPI

VERSION

version 6.019

DESCRIPTION

This role provides some common utilities for plugins which use PPI.

PERL VERSION SUPPORT

This module has the same support period as perl itself: it supports the two most recent versions of perl. (That is, if the most recently released version is v5.40, then this module should work on both v5.40 and v5.38.)

Although it may work on older versions of perl, no guarantee is made that the minimum required version will not be increased. The version may be increased for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower the minimum required perl.

METHODS

ppi_document_for_file

  my $document = $self->ppi_document_for_file($file);

Given a dzil file object (anything that does Dist::Zilla::Role::File), this method returns a new PPI::Document for that file's content.

Internally, this method caches these documents. If multiple plugins want a document for the same file, this avoids reparsing it.

save_ppi_document_to_file

  my $document = $self->save_ppi_document_to_file($document,$file);

Given a PPI::Document and a dzil file object (anything that does Dist::Zilla::Role::File), this method saves the serialized document in the file.

It also updates the internal PPI document cache with the new document.

document_assigns_to_variable

  if( $self->document_assigns_to_variable($document, '$FOO')) { ... }

This method returns true if the document assigns to the given variable (the sigil must be included).
