pp2pp - a Perl Point demo translator to PP itself (in variable syntaxi)
This manual describes version 0.04.
This is a demonstration application of the PP package. It translates PP into PP.
The target syntax depends on the specified -target option. It can be version 1, which is the original Perl Point syntax as introduced by T. Christiansen, or version 2 which is version 1 with the extensions made by L. Domke, or version 3 which is the most recent syntax and equal to the source processed by PerlPoint::Package.
Besides the demonstration of PerlPoint::Package usage, a translator like this provides a way to use syntax 3 (as declared for PerlPoint::Package) with an existing syntax 1 or syntax 2 translator.
This is a demonstration only. A real life
pp2pp translator surely should be more robust etc., the intention of this code is simply to show the usage of PerlPoint::Package, not a perfect translator.
