PPI::Token::Attribute(User Contributed Perl DocumentatPPI::Token::Attribute(3)

NAME
       PPI::Token::Attribute - A token for a subroutine	attribute

INHERITANCE
	 PPI::Token::Attribute
	 isa PPI::Token
	     isa PPI::Element

DESCRIPTION
       In Perl,	attributes are a relatively recent addition to the language.

       Given the code "	sub foo	: bar(something) {} ", the "bar(something)"
       part is the attribute.

       A "PPI::Token::Attribute" token represents the entire of	the attribute,
       as the braces and its contents are not parsed into the tree, and	are
       treated by Perl (and thus by us)	as a single string.

METHODS
       This class provides some	additional methods beyond those	provided by
       its PPI::Token and PPI::Element parent classes.

   identifier
       The "identifier"	attribute returns the identifier part of the
       attribute.

       That is,	for the	attribute "foo(bar)", the "identifier" method would
       return "foo".

   parameters
       The "parameters"	method returns the parameter string for	the attribute.

       That is,	for the	attribute "foo(bar)", the "parameters" method would
       return "bar".

       Returns the parameters as a string (including the null string ''	for
       the case	of an attribute	such as	"foo()".)

       Returns "undef" if the attribute	does not have parameters.

SUPPORT
       See the support section in the main module.
