       Test2::Util::Stash - Utilities for manipulating stashes and globs.


       This is a collection of utilities for manipulating and inspecting package stashes and


       $stash = get_stash($package)
           Gets the package stash. This is the same as "$stash = \%Package::Name::".

       $sym_spec = parse_symbol($symbol)
       $sym_spec = parse_symbol($symbol, $package)
           Parse a symbol name, and return a hashref with info about the symbol.

           $symbol can be a simple name, or a fully qualified symbol name. The sigil is optional,
           and "&" is assumed if none is provided. If $symbol is fully qualified, and $package is
           also provided, then the package of the symbol must match the $package.

           Returns a structure like this:

               return {
                   name    => 'BAZ',
                   sigil   => '$',
                   type    => 'SCALAR',
                   symbol  => '&Foo::Bar::BAZ',
                   package => 'Foo::Bar',

       $glob_ref = get_glob($symbol)
       $glob_ref = get_glob($symbol, $package)
           Get a glob ref. Arguments are the same as for "parse_symbol".

       $ref = get_symbol($symbol)
       $ref = get_symbol($symbol, $package)
           Get a reference to the symbol. Arguments are the same as for "parse_symbol".

       $ref = purge_symbol($symbol)
       $ref = purge_symbol($symbol, $package)
           Completely remove the symbol from the package symbol table. Arguments are the same as
           for "parse_symbol". A reference to the removed symbol is returned.

       $sig = slot_to_sig($slot)
           Convert a slot (like 'SCALAR') to a sigil (like '$').

       $slot = sig_to_slot($sig)
           Convert a sigil (like '$') to a slot (like 'SCALAR').
