       PPIx::EditorTools::RenameVariable - Lexically replace a variable name in Perl code


       version 0.21


           my $munged = PPIx::EditorTools::RenameVariable->new->rename(
               code        => $code,
               line        => 15,
               column      => 13,
               replacement => 'stuff',
           my $code_as_strig = $munged->code;
           my $code_as_ppi   = $munged->ppi;
           my $location      = $munged->element->location;


       This module will lexically replace a variable name.


           Constructor. Generally shouldn't be called with any arguments.

       rename( ppi => PPI::Document $ppi, line => Int, column => Int, replacement => Str )
       rename( code => Str $code, line => Int, column => Int, replacement => Str )
       rename( code => Str $code, line => Int, column => Int, to_camel_case => Bool, [ucfirst =>
       Bool] )
       rename( code => Str $code, line => Int, column => Int, from_camel_case => Bool, [ucfirst
       => Bool] )
           Accepts either a "PPI::Document" to process or a string containing the code (which
           will be converted into a "PPI::Document") to process.  Renames the variable found at
           line, column with that supplied in the "replacement" parameter and returns a
           "PPIx::EditorTools::ReturnObject" with the new code available via the "ppi" or "code"
           accessors, as a "PPI::Document" or "string", respectively. The "PPI::Token" found at
           line, column is available via the "element" accessor.

           Instead of specifying an explicit replacement variable name, you may choose to use the
           "to_camel_case" or "from_camel_case" options that automatically convert to/from
           camelCase. In that mode, the "ucfirst" option will force uppercasing of the first

           You can not specify a replacement name and use the "to/from_camel_case" options.

           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.


       This class inherits from "PPIx::EditorTools".  Also see App::EditorTools, Padre, and PPI.
