NAME

Pod::Simple::PullParserStartToken -- start-tokens from Pod::Simple::PullParser  

SYNOPSIS

(See Pod::Simple::PullParser)  

DESCRIPTION

When you do $parser->get_token on a Pod::Simple::PullParser object, you might get an object of this class.

This is a subclass of Pod::Simple::PullParserToken and inherits all its methods, and adds these methods:

$token->tagname
This returns the tagname for this start-token object. For example, parsing a ``=head1 ...'' line will give you a start-token with the tagname of ``head1'', token(s) for its content, and then an end-token with the tagname of ``head1''.
$token->tagname(somestring)
This changes the tagname for this start-token object. You probably won't need to do this.
$token->tag(...)
A shortcut for $token->tagname(...)
$token->is_tag(somestring) or $token->is_tagname(somestring)
These are shortcuts for "$token->tag() eq somestring"
$token->attr(attrname)
This returns the value of the attrname attribute for this start-token object, or undef.

For example, parsing a L<Foo/``Bar''> link will produce a start-token with a ``to'' attribute with the value ``Foo'', a ``type'' attribute with the value ``pod'', and a ``section'' attribute with the value ``Bar''.

$token->attr(attrname, newvalue)
This sets the attrname attribute for this start-token object to newvalue. You probably won't need to do this.
$token->attr_hash
This returns the hashref that is the attribute set for this start-token. This is useful if (for example) you want to ask what all the attributes are --- you can just do "keys %{$token->attr_hash}"

You're unlikely to ever need to construct an object of this class for yourself, but if you want to, call "Pod::Simple::PullParserStartToken->new( tagname, attrhash )"
