NAME

       PPIx::Regexp::Constant - Constants for the PPIx::Regexp system

SYNOPSIS

        use PPIx::Regexp::Constant qw{ TOKEN_UNKNOWN }
        print "An unknown token's class is TOKEN_UNKNOWN\n";

INHERITANCE

       "PPIx::Regexp::Constant" is an Exporter.

       "PPIx::Regexp::Constant" has no descendants.

DETAILS

       This module defines manifest constants for use by the various "PPIx::Regexp" modules.
       These constants are to be considered private to the "PPIx::Regexp" system, and the author
       reserves the right to change them without notice.

       This module exports the following manifest constants:

   @CARP_NOT
       This global variable contains the names of all modules in the package.

   ARRAY_REF
       This is the result of "ref []".

   CODE_REF
       This is the result of "ref sub {}".

   COOKIE_CLASS
       The name of the cookie used to control the construction of character classes.

       This cookie is set in PPIx::Regexp::Token::Structure when the left square bracket is
       encountered, and cleared in the same module when a right square bracket is encountered.

   COOKIE_LOOKAROUND_ASSERTION
       The name of the cookie used to control the parsing of zero-width assertions.

       This cookie is set in PPIx::Regexp::Token::GroupType::Assertion, and it persists until the
       end of the assertion.

   COOKIE_QUANT
       The name of the cookie used to control the construction of curly bracketed quantifiers.

       This cookie is set in PPIx::Regexp::Token::Structure when a left curly bracket is
       encountered. It requests itself to be cleared on encountering anything other than a
       literal comma, a literal digit, or an interpolation, or if more than one comma is
       encountered. If it survives until PPIx::Regexp::Token::Structure processes the right curly
       bracket, it is cleared there.

   COOKIE_QUOTE
       The name of the cookie used to control the parsing of "\Q ... \E" quoted literals.

       This cookie is set in PPIx::Regexp::Token::Control when a "\Q" is encountered, and it
       persists until the next "\E".

   COOKIE_REGEX_SET
       The name of the cookie used to control regular expression sets.

   HASH_REF
       This is the result of "ref {}".

   LITERAL_LEFT_CURLY_ALLOWED
       The Perl version at which allowed unescaped literal left curly brackets were removed. This
       may make more sense if I mention that its value is "undef".

   LITERAL_LEFT_CURLY_REMOVED_PHASE_1
       The Perl version at which the first phase of unescaped literal left curly bracket removal
       took place. The value of this constant is '5.025001'.

   LITERAL_LEFT_CURLY_REMOVED_PHASE_2
       The Perl version at which the second phase of unescaped literal left curly bracket removal
       took place. The value of this constant is "undef", but it will be assigned a value when
       the timing of the second phase is known.

   LITERAL_LEFT_CURLY_REMOVED_PHASE_3
       The Perl version at which the third phase of unescaped literal left curly bracket removal
       took place. This is the removal of curly brackets after a left parenthesis. The value of
       this constant is "undef", but it will be assigned a value when the timing of the second
       phase is known.

   MINIMUM_PERL
       The minimum version of Perl understood by this parser, as a float. It is currently set to
       5.000, since that is the minimum version of Perl accessible to the author.

   MODIFIER_GROUP_MATCH_SEMANTICS
       The name of the PPIx::Regexp::Token::Modifier group used to control match semantics.

   MSG_PROHIBITED_BY_STRICT
       An appropriate error message for an unknown entity created because 'strict' was in effect.
       This is rank ad-hocery, and more than usually subject to being changed, without any notice
       whatsoever. Caveat user.

   NODE_UNKNOWN
       The name of the class that represents an unknown node. That is,
       PPIx::Regexp::Node::Unknown.

   RE_CAPTURE_NAME
       A string representation of a regular expression that matches the name of a named capture
       buffer.

   REGEXP_REF
       This is the result of "ref qr{}".

   SCALAR_REF
       This is the result of "ref \0".

   STRUCTURE_UNKNOWN
       The name of the class that represents an unknown structure. That is,
       PPIx::Regexp::Structure::Unknown.

   SUFFICIENT_UTF8_SUPPORT_FOR_WEIRD_DELIMITERS
       A Boolean which is true if the running version of Perl has UTF-8 support sufficient for
       our purposes.

       Currently that means 5.8.3 or greater, with the specific requirements being "use open qw{
       :std :encoding(utf-8) }", "/\p{Mark}/", and the ability to parse things like "qr
       \N{U+FFFF}foo\N{U+FFFF}".

   TOKEN_LITERAL
       The name of the class that represents a literal token. That is,
       PPIx::Regexp::Token::Literal.

   TOKEN_UNKNOWN
       The name of the class that represents the unknown token. That is,
       PPIx::Regexp::Token::Unknown.
