PPI::Statement::Unknown - An unknown or transient statement


  isa PPI::Statement
      isa PPI::Node
          isa PPI::Element


The PPI::Statement::Unknown class is used primarily during the lexing process to hold elements that are known to be statement, but for which the exact type of statement is as yet unknown, and requires further tokens in order to resolve the correct type.

They should not exist in a fully parse valid document, and if any exists they indicate either a problem in Document, or possibly (by allowing it to get through unresolved) a bug in the PPI::Lexer manpage.


PPI::Statement::Unknown has no additional methods beyond the default ones provided by the PPI::Statement manpage, the PPI::Node manpage and the PPI::Element manpage.


See the support section in the main module.
