PPI::Statement::Null - A useless null statement
my $foo = 1;
; # <-- Null statement
my $bar = 1;
PPI::Statement::Null is a utility class designed to handle situations where PPI encounters a naked statement separator.
Although strictly speaking, the semicolon is a statement separator and not a statement terminator, PPI considers a semicolon to be a statement terminator under most circumstances.
In any case, the null statement has no purpose, and can be safely deleted with no ill effect.
PPI::Statement::Null has no additional methods beyond the default ones provided by PPI::Statement, PPI::Node and PPI::Element.
See the support section in the main module.
