NAME
       Test2::Util::Stash - Utilities for manipulating stashes and globs.

DESCRIPTION
       This is a collection of utilities for manipulating and inspecting
       package stashes and globs.

EXPORTS
       $stash =	get_stash($package)
	   Gets	the package stash. This	is the same as "$stash =
	   \%Package::Name::".

       $sym_spec = parse_symbol($symbol)
       $sym_spec = parse_symbol($symbol, $package)
	   Parse a symbol name,	and return a hashref with info about the
	   symbol.

	   $symbol can be a simple name, or a fully qualified symbol name. The
	   sigil is optional, and "&" is assumed if none is provided. If
	   $symbol is fully qualified, and $package is also provided, then the
	   package of the symbol must match the	$package.

	   Returns a structure like this:

	       return {
		   name	   => 'BAZ',
		   sigil   => '$',
		   type	   => 'SCALAR',
		   symbol  => '&Foo::Bar::BAZ',
		   package => 'Foo::Bar',
	       };

       $glob_ref = get_glob($symbol)
       $glob_ref = get_glob($symbol, $package)
	   Get a glob ref. Arguments are the same as for "parse_symbol".

       $ref = get_symbol($symbol)
       $ref = get_symbol($symbol, $package)
	   Get a reference to the symbol. Arguments are	the same as for
	   "parse_symbol".

       $ref = purge_symbol($symbol)
       $ref = purge_symbol($symbol, $package)
	   Completely remove the symbol	from the package symbol	table.
	   Arguments are the same as for "parse_symbol". A reference to	the
	   removed symbol is returned.

       $sig = slot_to_sig($slot)
	   Convert a slot (like	'SCALAR') to a sigil (like '$').

       $slot = sig_to_slot($sig)
	   Convert a sigil (like '$') to a slot	(like 'SCALAR').
