NAME

       Perl::Critic::Document - Caching wrapper around a PPI::Document.

SYNOPSIS

           use PPI::Document;
           use Perl::Critic::Document;
           my $doc = PPI::Document->new('Foo.pm');
           $doc = Perl::Critic::Document->new(-source => $doc);
           ## Then use the instance just like a PPI::Document

DESCRIPTION

       Perl::Critic does a lot of iterations over the PPI document tree via the
       "PPI::Document::find()" method.  To save some time, this class pre-caches a lot of the
       common "find()" calls in a single traversal.  Then, on subsequent requests we return the
       cached data.

       This is implemented as a facade, where method calls are handed to the stored
       "PPI::Document" instance.

CAVEATS

       This facade does not implement the overloaded operators from PPI::Document (that is, the
       "use overload ..."  work). Therefore, users of this facade must not rely on that syntactic
       sugar.  So, for example, instead of "my $source = "$doc";" you should write "my $source =
       $doc-"content();>

       Perhaps there is a CPAN module out there which implements a facade better than we do here?

INTERFACE SUPPORT

       This is considered to be a public class.  Any changes to its interface will go through a
       deprecation cycle.

CONSTRUCTOR

       "new(-source => $source_code, '-filename-override' => $filename, '-program-extensions' =>
       [program_extensions])"
           Create a new instance referencing a PPI::Document instance.  The $source_code can be
           the name of a file, a reference to a scalar containing actual source code, or a
           PPI::Document or PPI::Document::File.

           In the event that $source_code is a reference to a scalar containing actual source
           code or a PPI::Document, the resulting Perl::Critic::Document will not have a
           filename.  This may cause Perl::Critic::Document to incorrectly classify the source
           code as a module or script.  To avoid this problem, you can optionally set the
           "-filename-override" to force the Perl::Critic::Document to have a particular
           $filename.  Do not use this option if $source_code is already the name of a file, or
           is a reference to a PPI::Document::File.

           The '-program-extensions' argument is optional, and is a reference to a list of
           strings and/or regular expressions. The strings will be made into regular expressions
           matching the end of a file name, and any document whose file name matches one of the
           regular expressions will be considered a program.

           If -program-extensions is not specified, or if it does not determine the document
           type, the document will be considered to be a program if the source has a shebang line
           or its file name (if any) matches "m/ [.] PL \z /smx".

METHODS

       "ppi_document()"
           Accessor for the wrapped PPI::Document instance.  Note that altering this instance in
           any way can cause unpredictable failures in Perl::Critic's subsequent analysis because
           some caches may fall out of date.

       "find($wanted)"
       "find_first($wanted)"
       "find_any($wanted)"
           Caching wrappers around the PPI methods.  If $wanted is a simple PPI class name, then
           the cache is employed. Otherwise we forward the call to the corresponding method of
           the "PPI::Document" instance.

       "namespaces()"
           Returns a list of the namespaces (package names) in the document.

       "subdocuments_for_namespace($namespace)"
           Returns a list of sub-documents containing the elements in the given namespace.  For
           example, given that the current document is for the source

               foo();
               package Foo;
               package Bar;
               package Foo;

           this method will return two Perl::Critic::Documents for a parameter of "Foo".  For
           more, see "split_ppi_node_by_namespace" in PPIx::Utilities::Node.

       "ppix_regexp_from_element($element)"
           Caching wrapper around "PPIx::Regexp->new($element)".  If $element is a "PPI::Element"
           the cache is employed, otherwise it just returns the results of "PPIx::Regexp->new()".
           In either case, it returns "undef" unless the argument is something that PPIx::Regexp
           actually understands.

       "element_is_in_lexical_scope_after_statement_containing( $inner, $outer )"
           Is the $inner element in lexical scope after the statement containing the $outer
           element?

           In the case where $outer is itself a scope-defining element, returns true if $outer
           contains $inner. In any other case, $inner must be after the last element of the
           statement containing $outer, and the innermost scope for $outer also contains $inner.

           This is not the same as asking whether $inner is visible from $outer.

       "filename()"
           Returns the filename for the source code if applicable (PPI::Document::File) or
           "undef" otherwise (PPI::Document).

       "isa( $classname )"
           To be compatible with other modules that expect to get a PPI::Document, the
           Perl::Critic::Document class masquerades as the PPI::Document class.

       "highest_explicit_perl_version()"
           Returns a version object for the highest Perl version requirement declared in the
           document via a "use" or "require" statement.  Returns nothing if there is no version
           statement.

       "uses_module($module_or_pragma_name)"
           Answers whether there is a "use", "require", or "no" of the given name in this
           document.  Note that there is no differentiation of modules vs. pragmata here.

       "process_annotations()"
           Causes this Document to scan itself and mark which lines & policies are disabled by
           the "## no critic" annotations.

       "line_is_disabled_for_policy($line, $policy_object)"
           Returns true if the given $policy_object or $policy_name has been disabled for at
           $line in this Document.  Otherwise, returns false.

       "add_annotation( $annotation )"
           Adds an $annotation object to this Document.

       "annotations()"
           Returns a list containing all the Perl::Critic::Annotations that were found in this
           Document.

       "add_suppressed_violation($violation)"
           Informs this Document that a $violation was found but not reported because it fell on
           a line that had been suppressed by a "## no critic" annotation. Returns $self.

       "suppressed_violations()"
           Returns a list of references to all the Perl::Critic::Violations that were found in
           this Document but were suppressed.

       "is_program()"
           Returns whether this document is considered to be a program.

       "is_module()"
           Returns whether this document is considered to be a Perl module.
