NAME

       PPIx::EditorTools::FindVariableDeclaration - Finds where a variable was declared using PPI

VERSION

       version 0.21

SYNOPSIS

         # finds declaration of variable at cursor
         my $declaration = PPIx::EditorTools::FindVariableDeclaration->new->find(
           code =>
             "package TestPackage;\nuse strict;\nBEGIN {
           \$^W = 1;
       }\nmy \$x=1;\n\$x++;"
           line => 5,
           column => 2,
         );
         my $location = $declaration->element->location;

DESCRIPTION

       Finds the location of a variable declaration.

METHODS

       new()
           Constructor. Generally shouldn't be called with any arguments.

       find( ppi => PPI::Document $ppi, line => $line, column => $column )
       find( code => Str $code, line => $line, column => $column )
           Accepts either a "PPI::Document" to process or a string containing the code (which
           will be converted into a "PPI::Document") to process.  Searches for the variable
           declaration and returns a "PPIx::EditorTools::ReturnObject" with the declaration
           ("PPI::Statement::Variable") available via the "element" accessor.

           Croaks with a "no token" exception if no token is found at the location.  Croaks with
           a "no declaration" exception if unable to find the declaration.
