=head1 NAME

PPI::Token::QuoteLike - Quote-like operator abstract base class


  isa PPI::Token
      isa PPI::Element


The C<PPI::Token::QuoteLike> class is never instantiated, and simply
provides a common abstract base class for the five quote-like operator
classes. In PPI, a "quote-like" is the set of quote-like things that
exclude the string quotes and regular expressions.

The subclasses of C<PPI::Token::QuoteLike> are:

=over 2

=item qw{} - L<PPI::Token::QuoteLike::Words>

=item `` - L<PPI::Token::QuoteLike::Backtick>

=item qx{} - L<PPI::Token::QuoteLike::Command>

=item qr// - L<PPI::Token::QuoteLike::Regexp>

=item <FOO> - L<PPI::Token::QuoteLike::Readline>


The names are hopefully obvious enough not to have to explain what
each class is. See their pages for more details.

You may note that the backtick and command quote-like are treated
separately, even though they do the same thing. This is intentional,
as the inherit from and are processed by two different parts of the
PPI's quote engine.
