The Test::Inline::Extract package extracts content interesting to Test::Inline from source files.

elements

  my $elements = $Extract->elements;

The elements method extracts from the Pod any parts of the file that are relevant to the extraction and generation process of Test::Inline.

The elements will be either a package statements, or a section of inline unit tests. They will only be returned if there is at least one section of inline unit tests.

Returns a reference to an array of package strings and sections of inline unit tests. Returns false if there are no sections containing inline unit tests.
