PPI - Parse and manipulate Perl code non-destructively, without using perl itself


This is PPI, originally short for Parse::Perl::Isolated, a package for parsing and manipulating Perl documents.

For more information, see the PPI Manual

The PPI itself provides the primary mechanism for loading the PPI library, as the full library contains over 50 classes.


Although this is pre-beta, what code is there should actually work. So if you find any bugs, they should be submitted via the CPAN bug tracker, located at


For other issues, or commercial enhancement or support, contact the author.. In particular, if you want to make a CPAN or private module that uses PPI, it would be best to stay in direct contact with the author until PPI goes beta.
