NAME

Pod::Simple::LinkSection -- represent "section" attributes of L codes

SYNOPSIS

 # a long story

DESCRIPTION

This class is not of interest to general users.

Pod::Simple uses this class for representing the value of the "section" attribute of "L" start-element events. Most applications can just use the normal stringification of objects of this class; they stringify to just the text content of the section, such as "foo" for L<Stuff/foo>, and "bar" for L<Stuff/bI<ar>>.

However, anyone particularly interested in getting the full value of the treelet, can just traverse the content of the treeleet @$treelet_object. To wit:

  % perl -MData::Dumper -e
    "use base qw(Pod::Simple::Methody);
     sub start_L { print Dumper($_[1]{'section'} ) }
     __PACKAGE__->new->parse_string_document('=head1 L<Foo/bI<ar>baz>>')
    "
Output:
  $VAR1 = bless( [
                   '',
                   {},
                   'b',
                   bless( [
                            'I',
                            {},
                            'ar'
                          ], 'Pod::Simple::LinkSection' ),
                   'baz'
                 ], 'Pod::Simple::LinkSection' );

But stringify it and you get just the text content:

  % perl -MData::Dumper -e
    "use base qw(Pod::Simple::Methody);
     sub start_L { print Dumper( '' . $_[1]{'section'} ) }
     __PACKAGE__->new->parse_string_document('=head1 L<Foo/bI<ar>baz>>')
    "
Output:
  $VAR1 = 'barbaz';
