NAME

       Pod::Simple::PullParserTextToken -- text-tokens from Pod::Simple::PullParser

SYNOPSIS

       (See Pod::Simple::PullParser)

DESCRIPTION

       When you do $parser->get_token on a Pod::Simple::PullParser, you might get an object of
       this class.

       This is a subclass of Pod::Simple::PullParserToken and inherits all its methods, and adds
       these methods:

       $token->text
           This returns the text that this token holds.  For example, parsing C<foo> will return
           a C start-token, a text-token, and a C end-token.  And if you want to get the "foo"
           out of the text-token, call "$token->text"

       $token->text(somestring)
           This changes the string that this token holds.  You probably won't need to do this.

       $token->text_r()
           This returns a scalar reference to the string that this token holds.  This can be
           useful if you don't want to memory-copy the potentially large text value (well, as
           large as a paragraph or a verbatim block) as calling $token->text would do.

           Or, if you want to alter the value, you can even do things like this:

             for ( ${  $token->text_r  } ) {  # Aliases it with $_ !!

               s/ The / the /g; # just for example

               if( 'A' eq chr(65) ) {  # (if in an ASCII world)
                 tr/\xA0/ /;
                 tr/\xAD//d;
               }

               ...or however you want to alter the value...
               (Note that starting with Perl v5.8, you can use, e.g.,

                   my $nbsp = chr utf8::unicode_to_native(0xA0);
                   s/$nbsp/ /g;

               to handle the above regardless if it's an ASCII world or not)
             }

       You're unlikely to ever need to construct an object of this class for yourself, but if you
       want to, call "Pod::Simple::PullParserTextToken->new( text )"
