NAME

       PPIx::Regexp::Support - Basis for the PPIx::Regexp support classes

SYNOPSIS

        use PPIx::Regexp::Dumper;
        PPIx::Regexp::Dumper->new( 'qr{foo}smx' )
            ->print();

INHERITANCE

       "PPIx::Regexp::Support" is not descended from any other class.

       "PPIx::Regexp::Support" is the parent of PPIx::Regexp::Dumper, PPIx::Regexp::Lexer and
       PPIx::Regexp::Tokenizer.

DESCRIPTION

       This abstract class provides methods for the "PPIx::Regexp" support classes.

METHODS

       This class provides the following public methods. Methods not documented here are private,
       and unsupported in the sense that the author reserves the right to change or remove them
       without notice.

   close_bracket
       This method takes as its argument a character. If this character is an open bracket the
       corresponding close bracket is returned. Otherwise "undef" is returned. Only the ASCII
       bracket characters are considered brackets: (), {}, [], and <>.

   decode
       This method wraps the Encode::decode subroutine. If the object specifies no encoding or
       encode_available() returns false, this method simply returns its input string.

   encode
       This method wraps the Encode::encode subroutine. If the object specifies no encoding or
       encode_available() returns false, this method simply returns its input string.

   encode_available
       This method returns true if the Encode module is available, and false otherwise. If it
       returns true, the Encode module has actually been loaded.

       Support is by the author. Please file bug reports at <http://rt.cpan.org>, or in
