PPI::Transform::UpdateCopyright - Demonstration PPI::Transform class
my $transform = PPI::Transform::UpdateCopyright->new( name => 'Adam Kennedy' ); $transform->file('Module.pm');
PPI::Transform::UpdateCopyright provides a demonstration of a typical PPI::Transform class.
This class implements a document transform that will take the name of an author and update the copyright statement to refer to the current year, if it does not already do so.
my $transform = PPI::Transform::UpdateCopyright->new( name => 'Adam Kennedy' );
new constructor creates a new transform object for a specific author. It takes a single
name parameter that should be the name (or longer string) for the author.
Specifying the name is required to allow the changing of a subset of copyright statements that refer to you from a larger set in a file.
name accessor returns the author name that the transform will be searching for copyright statements of.
- May need to overload some methods to forcefully prevent Document objects becoming children of another Node.
