PPI::Token::Pod - Sections of POD in Perl documents


  isa PPI::Token
      isa PPI::Element


A single PPI::Token::Pod object represents a complete section of POD documentation within a Perl document.


This class provides some additional methods beyond those provided by its PPI::Token and PPI::Element parent classes.

merge @podtokens

The merge constructor takes a number of PPI::Token::Pod objects, and returns a new object that represents one combined POD block with the content of all of them.

Returns a new PPI::Token::Pod object, or undef on error.


The lines method takes the string of POD and breaks it into lines, returning them as a list.


See the support section in the main module.
