NAME

PPI::Token::Cast - A prefix which forces a value into a different context

INHERITANCE

  PPI::Token::Cast
  isa PPI::Token
      isa PPI::Element

DESCRIPTION

A "cast" in PPI terms is one of more characters used as a prefix which force a value into a different class or context.

This includes referencing, dereferencing, and a few other minor cases.

For expressions such as @$foo or @{ $foo{bar} } the @ in both cases represents a cast. In this case, an array dereference.

METHODS

There are no additional methods beyond those provided by the parent PPI::Token and PPI::Element classes.

Got any ideas for methods? Submit a report to rt.cpan.org!
