PPI::Token::Quote::Double - A standard "double quote" token


PPI::Token::Quote::Double - A standard ``double quote'' token


  isa PPI::Token::Quote
      isa PPI::Token
          isa PPI::Element


A PPI::Token::Quote::Double object represents a double-quoted interpolating string.

The string is treated as a single entity, PPI will not try to understand what is in the string during the parsing process.


There are several methods available for PPI::Token::Quote::Double, beyond those provided by the parent the PPI::Token::Quote manpage, the PPI::Token manpage and the PPI::Element manpage classes.

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


The interpolations method checks to see if the double quote actually contains any interpolated variables.

Returns true if the string contains interpolations, or false if not.


For various reasons, some people find themselves compelled to have their code in the simplest form possible.

The simply method will turn a simple double-quoted string into the equivalent single-quoted string.

If the double can be simplified, it will be modified in place and returned as a convenience, or returns false if the string cannot be simplified.


See the support section in the main module.
