NAME

       Pod::Simple::LinkSection -- represent "section" attributes of L codes

SYNOPSIS

        # a long story

DESCRIPTION

       This class is not of interest to general users.

       Pod::Simple uses this class for representing the value of the "section" attribute of "L"
       start-element events.  Most applications can just use the normal stringification of
       objects of this class; they stringify to just the text content of the section, such as
       "foo" for "L<Stuff/foo>", and "bar" for "L<Stuff/bI<ar>>".

       However, anyone particularly interested in getting the full value of the treelet, can just
       traverse the content of the treeleet @$treelet_object.  To wit:

         % perl -MData::Dumper -e
           "use base qw(Pod::Simple::Methody);
            sub start_L { print Dumper($_[1]{'section'} ) }
            __PACKAGE__->new->parse_string_document('=head1 L<Foo/bI<ar>baz>>')
           "
       Output:
         $VAR1 = bless( [
                          '',
                          {},
                          'b',
                          bless( [
                                   'I',
                                   {},
                                   'ar'
                                 ], 'Pod::Simple::LinkSection' ),
                          'baz'
                        ], 'Pod::Simple::LinkSection' );

       But stringify it and you get just the text content:

         % perl -MData::Dumper -e
           "use base qw(Pod::Simple::Methody);
            sub start_L { print Dumper( '' . $_[1]{'section'} ) }
            __PACKAGE__->new->parse_string_document('=head1 L<Foo/bI<ar>baz>>')
           "
       Output:
         $VAR1 = 'barbaz';
