       PPI::Exception - The PPI exception base class


         use PPI::Exception;

         my $e = PPI::Exception->new( 'something happened' );

         PPI::Exception->new( message => 'something happened' )->throw;
         PPI::Exception->throw( message => 'something happened' );


       All exceptions thrown from within PPI will be instances or derivations of this class.


   new $message | message => $message, ...
       Constructs and returns a new "PPI::Exception" object.

       A message for the exception can be passed, either as a string or as "message => $message".
       The message is available via the "message" method.

       If called on a "PPI::Exception" object, throws the object.  If called on the class name,
       uses the arguments to construct a "PPI::Exception" and then throw it.

       Each time the object is thrown, information from the Perl <caller(0)> call is saved and
       made available via the "callers" method.

       This method never returns.

       Returns the exception message passed to the object's constructor, or a default message.

       Returns a listref, each element of which is a listref of caller(0) information.  The
       returned listref can be empty.
