NAME

       Pod::Simple::PullParserStartToken -- start-tokens from Pod::Simple::PullParser

SYNOPSIS

       (See Pod::Simple::PullParser)

DESCRIPTION

       When you do $parser->get_token on a Pod::Simple::PullParser object, 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->tagname
           This returns the tagname for this start-token object.  For example, parsing a "=head1
           ..." line will give you a start-token with the tagname of "head1", token(s) for its
           content, and then an end-token with the tagname of "head1".

       $token->tagname(somestring)
           This changes the tagname for this start-token object.  You probably won't need to do
           this.

       $token->tag(...)
           A shortcut for $token->tagname(...)

       $token->is_tag(somestring) or $token->is_tagname(somestring)
           These are shortcuts for "$token->tag() eq somestring"

       $token->attr(attrname)
           This returns the value of the attrname attribute for this start-token object, or
           undef.

           For example, parsing a L<Foo/"Bar"> link will produce a start-token with a "to"
           attribute with the value "Foo", a "type" attribute with the value "pod", and a
           "section" attribute with the value "Bar".

       $token->attr(attrname, newvalue)
           This sets the attrname attribute for this start-token object to newvalue.  You
           probably won't need to do this.

       $token->attr_hash
           This returns the hashref that is the attribute set for this start-token.  This is
           useful if (for example) you want to ask what all the attributes are -- you can just do
           "keys %{$token->attr_hash}"

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