PPIx::Regexp::Token::Unknown - Represent an unknown token


 use PPIx::Regexp::Dumper;
 PPIx::Regexp::Dumper->new( 'xyzzy' )


PPIx::Regexp::Token::Unknown is a PPIx::Regexp::Token.

PPIx::Regexp::Token::Unknown has no descendants.


This token represents something that could not be identified by the tokenizer. Sometimes the lexer can fix these up, but the presence of one of these in a finished parse represents something in the regular expression that was not understood.


This class provides the following public methods. Methods not documented here are private, and unsupported in the sense that the author reserves the right to change or remove them without notice.


This method returns undef because, since we could not identify the token, we have no idea whether it matches anything.


This method returns the results of the ord built-in on the content (meaning, of course, the first character of the content). No attempt is made to interpret the content, since after all this is the unknown token.


Support is by the author. Please file bug reports at https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Dist/Display.html?Name=PPIx-Regexp, https://github.com/trwyant/perl-PPIx-Regexp/issues, or in electronic mail to the author.
