DESCRIPTION

This module uses PPI to change the package name of code.

METHODS

new()

Constructor. Generally shouldn't be called with any arguments.

rename( ppi => PPI::Document $ppi, replacement => Str )
rename( code => Str $code, replacement => Str )

Accepts either a PPI::Document to process or a string containing the code (which will be converted into a PPI::Document) to process. Replaces the package name 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.

Croaks with a "package name not found" exception if unable to find the package name.

SEE ALSO

This class inherits from PPIx::EditorTools. Also see App::EditorTools, Padre, and PPI.
