NAME

Parse::Java - Parser for Java code

SYNOPSIS

    use Parse::Java;

    my $ast = Parse::Java->parse_file('MyClass.java');
        

DESCRIPTION

Parse::Java parses Java code into an Abstract Syntax Tree which can be used for many things like writing compilers and stuff.

As this module is currently under development it isn't yet able to parse much Java. What's in the t/*.t basically works but not much else.

The lexer should also more or less work fine except expansion of unicode escapes \uNNNN.

INTERFACE

This module uses an object-oriented interface.

CLASS METHODS

parse_file ( $path )

Parses the contents of the file $path. Returns an AST representing the code.

parse_string

Parses the source in $string. Returns an AST representing the code.

detokenize ( $ast )

Walks the AST and replaces all Parse::Java::Token-objects with their stringified value.

INSTANCE METHODS

_set_input ( $source )

Sets the input to the lexer.

_next_token

Returns a list with the next token from the stream and its value.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

PLEASE DO NOT REPORT ANY BUGS AS THIS MODULE IS UNDER DEVELOPMENT.
