       PPI::Token::QuoteLike - Quote-like operator abstract base class


         isa PPI::Token
             isa PPI::Element


       The "PPI::Token::QuoteLike" class is never instantiated, and simply provides a common
       abstract base class for the five quote-like operator classes. In PPI, a "quote-like" is
       the set of quote-like things that exclude the string quotes and regular expressions.

       The subclasses of "PPI::Token::QuoteLike" are:

       qw{} - PPI::Token::QuoteLike::Words
       `` - PPI::Token::QuoteLike::Backtick
       qx{} - PPI::Token::QuoteLike::Command
       qr// - PPI::Token::QuoteLike::Regexp
       <FOO> - PPI::Token::QuoteLike::Readline

       The names are hopefully obvious enough not to have to explain what each class is. See
       their pages for more details.

       You may note that the backtick and command quote-like are treated separately, even though
       they do the same thing. This is intentional, as the inherit from and are processed by two
       different parts of the PPI's quote engine.
